Recipe: Tandem Meatloaf

By: Janet K.

I’ve got another fast and simple recipe to share with you. I call this one Tandem Meatloaf. This recipe makes two loaves (hence the name).

As I mentioned before, cooking in the truck starts with a little preparation: we shop at Wal-Mart once each week so that I’ll have everything I need in the truck when I am ready to make this treat! Here is the recipe, I hope you all enjoy it!

Shopping List:

  • 1 lb ground chuck or beef
  • 1 pkg Dry Onion Soup Mix
  • 1 pkg Egg Beaters
  • 3/4 pkg Saltine Crackers
  • Green Pepper (optional)
  • Salt & Pepper – (to taste)
  • Ketchup – (enough to moisten the meatloaf and cover the top.)

A Few Quick Tips:

I like to buy the ground beef in a roll – it’s just less of a mess for me. I also buy dry onion soup mix and egg beaters because they are easy to store in the truck. – The onion soup is really the secret to this recipe, it packs the meal full of flavor – and I don’t have to peel an onion!

Cooking Instructions:

Mix the ingredients (ground beef, dry onion soup mix, Egg Beaters, Saltines, Green Peppers, Ketchup, Salt & Pepper) and arrange mixture into loaf pans. Cover the trays with foil, and cook in your Burton Stove (on Hi – if your stove/oven has a heat setting) for approximately 2 hours. You could cook both pans the same evening, and save one pan for meatloaf sandwiches the next day (which is what I like to do), or cook the second pan the next day. I served mine with green beans, little round potatoes, and a salad ( from a bag). I hope this recipe has been helpful, and you like it as much as we do!

I have found that cooking in the truck is much better than eating out every night, and it’s a nice change from burgers or pizza. It does take a little more effort – but I think it’s worth it – and so does my hubby. Plus, we save money! I think a solo driver could also make this while on a short break and let the Burton Stove work its magic while he or she drives.
