MEAT LOAF FOR THE BIG GREEN EGG – A Richard Howe original recipe.
***** 2 Meatloaves*****
2 Lbs. Ground Chuck
2 Lbs. Ground Round
3 Whole Eggs
1 Large Vidalia Onion, Chopped Medium
10-15 Saltine Crackers, Crushed
1/2-3/4 Cup Spicy Ketchup
1/2-3/4 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
2-3 Tbs. Dijon Mustard
1-2 Cups Pepper Ridge Farms Herbed Seasoning Stuffing
1-1 1/2 Pkg. Lipton Onion Soup Mix
Coarse Peppermill Black Pepper, to taste
*****Sauce, 1 Meatloaf*****
1 Cup Spicy Ketchup
1/4 Cup Dijon Mustard
1/2-3/4 Cup Brown Sugar, Packed
2-3 Tbs. Balsamic Vinegar
1 Cup Parmesan Cheese, Grated
Ground Pepper to taste
1 The meat recipe makes 2 nice 10 inch diameter loaves and they are about 1 1/2 – 2 inches thick. The sauce is for one meatloaf. The meat recipe may be halved or the other loaf frozen, which is what I do.
2 When mixing the meat and other ingredients, mix about 1/3 saltine crackers and 2/3 Pepper Ridge stuffing, do in 1/4 -1/2 cup portions so as not to dry out the mixture.
3 Covered with the sauce at the beginning of the cook.
4 You want the sauce to be thick. if necessary thin with water or more vinegar. Slather all over! Nice to have a little sauce left over, to serve with.
Richard recently cooked one on the small indirect at 325-350F about an hour pulled around 150F.
Yield: 2-2 Pound Loaves
A delicious alternative is to place about 1/3 pound provolone cheese in the middle which makes a great Cheese Meatloaf.
