Southern Meatloaf

Being a single southern male, you would figure that I’d already done this one.
This is not a fancy meal but it is the king of roadside diners in the south.

Plated Southern Meatloaf

As always, the freshest ingredients the better.
The use of lean meat will keep you from having to siphon out excess grease.
If for some reason you don’t feel like making the Sun Sauce, I recommend Mrs Renfro’s Habanero Salsa…


2 lb lean hamburger
1 diced pork tenderloin steak about an inch thick
1 large onion – chunks
6 cloves garlic – minced
2 serranos – minced
1 red bell pepper – 1″ slices
1 cup Sun Sauce
1/2 cup water
2 eggs
3 cups bread crumbs w/basil
1/4 cup Sun Sauce for glaze

Preheat oven to 350

Butter up a 13x9x2 glass baking dish.

Prepare and combine, in order, the first 10 ingredients.
Fill the dish with meat and gently spread evenly. Do Not Pack!
Cover with foil and bake for about 20 minutes. Check for grease, siphon if need be.
Cover and bake another 20 minutes…repeat the grease thing.

Spread remaining Sun Sauce for your glaze and place in the oven…raising the temp to ‘broil’ and keep a close eye on it…when crispy, retrieve from oven, cover and let sit for 20 minutes or so…

Serve up some Garlic Mashed Taters and Green Beans…
