The book was put out by the Atlanta Gas Light Co., Home Service Department. The first page assures me that "It's Fun to Cook!" That would be because they are going to show me how to use my new gas range. They are especially proud of its ability to broil foods as there is an extensive amount of recipes for broiling everything, including dessert.
Today's featured recipe is for Broiled Meatloaf. I don't make meatloaf very often because of the long baking time, so this time-shortened version intrigues me. I will be testing this as soon as ground beef quits pretending it should cost as much as steak. I hope that's soon!
Broiled Meat Loaf
1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup crushed cereal crumbs (What kind of cereal?)
1/3 cup milk
1 tablespoon chopped onion
Mix all ingredients together and divide in half on waxed paper. Shape into two firm loaves. Arrange on cold broiler grill 6 inches from flame. Broil 15 minutes, turn, and broil another 10 minutes or until meat is done. Barbecue sauce can be brushed over loaves or served with them. Strips of bacon can be placed over loaves just before they are done and broiled until they are crisp. (Yum!)
