    No guilt at all. Many, if not the majority, of animals eat other animals for sustenance. Big meat eater here, I eat meat every day whether it be beef, pork, chicken, etc. Couldn't imagine meals without it. Nothing like a big medium rare steak.

    Me neither. But I wouldn't want this thread to get side-tracked into this alternate discussion.

    The OP set up this thread to talk about cooking and sharing fun recipes.

    Interesting. I'm not a particular fan of the stuffed category. But that has sausage. :)

    Recalls the classic Calvin & Hobbes strip where his mom tells him the stuffed peppers are "monkey heads", and Calvin thinks the stuffing is brains. Calvin is enthusiastic about dinner for once!

    It was delicious....my wife added small chunks of apple to the stuffing mix. This and a Caesar salad was perfect. The sausage adds a great texture and a little kick. We're both foodies so we try different things all the time.

    Tonight was Meat Loaf. It's my wife's mom's recipe, I think. It's a basic 1960s recipe: pound of beef mixed in with some cubed bread, milk, couple eggs, ketchup, mustard, salt, pepper, and sage. I need to fine tune it for the bread and beef I'm using now. The meat was clumped and overcooked in places and too thinned by all the liquid in others.

    So, anyone got a favorite, easy meat loaf recipe? :)

    We have a big family....6 of us in all, so we try to use cheaper cuts of meat to save $. We've found London Broil to be a good cut for grilling/roasting for our crowd. Its very lean so we've found that marinating is best for flavor and tenderizing. Orange juice makes a great marinade base as the citric acid is a natural tenderizer. Mix it with seasonings, worchestershire sauce, etc and marinate for a few hours before grilling/roasting and it works very well.

    I've got to play with your meat loaf recipe. The onions and peppers won't work; they upset the wife's stomach. But the oats are interesting. And I like the brown sugar on top.

    For meat loaf, oats work better than bread crumbs.I use McCann's(probably not the correct brand. White tin and they are 45 minute cook steel cut)

    My mom always used oats as well. I haven't made meatloaf in years though, and my wife doesn't care for it, so it probably won't be a dish in our home anytime soon.
