Do you have a comfort food? For me it was always meatloaf and potatoes. I have been trying to get more veggies into all of our food so, I tried a few new things with my favorite recipe. The first thing I did was I tore up some spinach leaves and added it to the meatloaf. I also wanted to take out the 1/2 cup of milk and I added in it's place sugar free apple butter. Be warned, it was a sweet meatloaf, but it tasted very good. My recipe already had brown sugar in it. I found this meatloaf recipe in a church cookbook. I like using recipes out of church cookbooks because you know the cooks have made them and liked how they turned out.
1 lb. hamburger
1/4 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp ground sage
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk ( I substituted apple butter)
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
Optional: I also added a 1/2 cup of torn baby spinach
1/4 cup ketchup
green pepper rings
Take all ingredients and mix well. Then pour ketchup down the center of the loaf and top with several pepper rings. Bake at 350 degrees for an hour.
Here is a picture of it ready to go in the oven.
