Mom's making it up to us: Tonight we get LOAF!

Since Mom tortured us with Feline Advantage AND clippy claws, she's making LOAF for dinner and we get some. Try to get your mom/food lady (or food dude) to make some for you. It's especially good piping hot out of the oven, but we'll eat it cold or as part of a sammich (is that how it's spelled, Skeezix?).

EZ Loaf

2 eggs whisked thoroughly
2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 box (6 ounce size) of Stove Top Stuffing (chicken flavor)
1 cup water (room temperature ... like Sparky Fuzzypant's I.Q.)
1/2 cup barbecue sauce (we like Bull's Eye original), divided

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit

2. Put whisked eggs, 1/4 cup of barbecue sauce, beef, stuffing mix, and water into a bowl. Mix them with a wooden spoon until incorporated (don't over mix). Shape into a "loaf" and place inside a 13 x 9-inch baking dish (so you can easily pour off the grease as it cooks).

3. Spread the remaining barbecue sauce over the top so it will form a glaze/crust as it cooks. Bake for 1 hour or until fully cooked. Use a thermometer to check for 160 degrees F core temperature.

This LOAF makes 8 human servings or tons and tons of cat servings. Mmmm ... I can smell the LOAF already. I can't wait! Maybe I can get Lucky Charmz to pry open the oven and rescue the LOAF ...

Mum is saying yum. She hasn't had dinner yet. Can you teleport over a serving for us to share?

Oooooh, we love meatloaf! Our Dad makes an excellent one. He has to make it extra big so that all of us (2 beans ans 2 kitties) have plenty.

Derby ... Did you get the LOAF that I sent? I garnished it with some parsley sprigs and even sent a sidedish of scalloped potatoes for your mum. Be sure to eat it while it's hot.
