I tried a new recipe tonight that I thought I'd share with you. First of all, it's from "Taste of Home 5-10-20" cookbook. All recipes either take 5 ingredients, 10 minute prep, or 20 minutes to the table. My mom got it for me for Mother's Day and I've got a ton of recipes flagged to try. There are a lot of pictures and the whole idea of the cookbook is right up my alley - good, homemade food that doesn't take all day to prepare.
Pepper Jack Meatloaf
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1-1/2 lbs ground beef
1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
-Combine egg, bread crumbs, onion, salt and pepper. Add beef and mix well.
-Press half of the beef mixture in a greased 8x4x2 inch loaf pan on the bottom and sides.
-Sprinkle 3/4 cups cheese over the meat.
-Pat remaining beef mixture over cheese.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes until beef is no longer pink and meat is 160 degrees. Sprinkle remaining cheese and bake 5 minutes more. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serve with salsa if desired.
Here's my in-process pic, before I added the top layer of beef.
Here's my plate before I devoured it. It was so good!
