Meatloaf w/Country Bling Magic!!

Lord Honey, a big slice of meatloaf is a big ol' slice of comfort and nostalgia. Just the smell of it can bring back memories of Granny's kitchen--and Oh, my--the taste of it brings pure comfort to the tummy and the soul. Taters are another All-American comfort food--so I've brought them together with some "Country Bling" magic--enjoy new memories when y'all make my "All-American Magical Meatloaf" for friends and family.

Hi Jason,

Just had to tell you something I tried this weekend! I wanted homemade pizza but didn’t have a crust or yeast. I mixed equal parts full fat sour cream and SR flour! I stirred it til it came together then kneaded it and formed it in a disc and put olive oil on both sides let it rest about 5 minutes, spread on pizza pan used a fork to prick it so it wouldn’t puff up. Baked at 450 degrees for 5 minutes, put on toppings and baked about 10 mins and it was yummy!

Hey sugar. Yes 1 1/4 cup in the meatloaf. This recipe want get firm in crockpot as it holds lots more moisture and doesn’t allow it to firm. That’s just the nature of a crockpot. But glad it tasted good for ya.


This was amazing. One question is there supposed to be 1 and 1/4 cups of ketchup in the meatloaf or just 1/4 cup? I put 1 and 1/4 cup and it didn't firm up. I also cooked it in the crockpot without the potatoes on the bottom. It was still delicious.
