Spicy Meatloaf

You’ll need: 

2 eggs, beaten

2/3 c. seasoned bread crumbs

1 onion, finely chopped

2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped

1/2 c. raisins

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/3 tsp black pepper

1-1/2 lb. lean ground beef

1/3 c. ketchup

3 Tbsp. packed brown sugar

1/3 c. mayonnaise or salad dressing

1 Tbsp. prepared horseradish

12 slices potato bread


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In medium bowl combine eggs, bread crumbs, onion, tomatoes, raisins, salt, cloves, and pepper. Add meat; mix well. Lightly pat meat mixture into 9x5x3-inch loaf pan.

2. Bake 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until internal temperature registers 160 degrees F. Spoon off fat. In bowl combine ketchup and brown sugar; spread over meat. Bake 5 minutes more. Let stand 15 minutes. Using two spatulas, lift meat loaf from pan to cutting board. Cut in 12 slices.

3. Stir together mayonnaise and horseradish. Spread mayonnaise mixture on potato bread. Top bread with 2 meat loaf slices. Makes 6 servings.

Barbecue Chicken Pasta

You’ll need: 

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size chunks

1 onion, diced

3 c. water

2-1/2 c. chicken broth

1/2 tsp. salt

12 oz. pasta (penne or bow tie work best)

2/3 c. barbecue sauce (we love Head Country)

1/3 c. sour cream

1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese


1. In a large 12-inch nonstick skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat (you could also use a large pot if you don’t have a skillet this big). When hot, add the chicken and onions and saute, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is browned and cooked through. Remove the chicken and onions to a plate and set aside.

2. In the same skillet, add the water, chicken broth, penne and salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes, until the liquid is almost absorbed, the pasta is tender and the mixture is thick and syrupy. Stir in the barbecue sauce and sour cream. Once mixed, add in the reserved chicken, onions and shredded cheese. Stir to combine and cook until everything is heated through.

3. Serve immediately and garnish with additional red or green onions and shredded cheese.
