Tyler made an easy recipe but there was a lot of peeling and chopping.
This recipe calls for a plain meat patty but I would add some ketchup, egg and rice or oatmeal and make it into a mini meatloaf. You can add to or delete vegetables.
1 ½ -2 lb lean ground beef 2 yellow squash sliced
2 -3 lg. potatoes peeled and thinly sliced 4 carrots sliced
2 lg. onion thinly sliced salt and pepper to taste
Form ground beef into six patties. Place each on a square of aluminum foil. Place vegetables on top of each patty. Add salt and pepper. Wrap foil tightly around each patty. Place on baking sheet. Bake at 375F for 1 hr to 1 hr 15 min.
Jasmine made an awesome meatloaf.
It was easier to mix literally by hand.
We are learning to clean up as we go BUT the cook does not have to do his/her supper job that night.

Adam made sloppy joes from a recipe in the church cook book. We did not like it well enough to add it to our recipes. We decided we like Manwich much better!
