Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House Meat Loaf

Guys, this is the BEST meat loaf I have ever put in my mouth! It is not your everyday meatloaf. The homemade sauce is definitely a step up from youItalicr average bottle of catsup. The brown sugar makes this southern dish melt in your mouth while your hands are reaching for more. This recipe is taken form the Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House Cookbook with a few minor changes that have worked great for me in my kitchen. The picture does no justice for the flavor bursting inside. My family was in a hurry to dig in so I didn't have the chance to make it picture perfect.

Boarding House Meat Loaf:

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef-chuck

  • 3/4 cup uncooked, quick-oats

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

  • 1/4 cup chopped onion (I add a little extra, I love the taste of fresh onion!)

  • 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper

  • 1/4 cup catsup

  • 2 eggs, beaten

Grease a loaf pan.

Combine all of the ingredients into a loaf.

Preheat oven to 365 degrees and cook for about an hour, or until it reaches 160 degrees in the center.

Pour off the juice and place on a platter and cover with meat loaf sauce.

Boarding House Meat Loaf Sauce:

  • 3/4 cup catsup

  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion

  • 2 tablespoons chopped green bell pepper

  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar, slightly packed

Heat sauce mixture in a small saucepan and simmer over low heat until the onions and peppers are tender.
