Easy Salsa Meatloaf

Dear Readers,

This is my last posting of 2012 and I decided a recipe was a good way to end the year.  We enjoyed this meatloaf a few weeks ago.  It is quick, delicious and easy to prepare.  What else could a cook ask for?  Tinkerbell 15 submitted the recipe to allrecipes.com and I’m glad she did.

Easy Salsa Meatloaf

1 pound ground beef sirloin

1/2 cup salsa

1/2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

1 egg, lightly beaten

3 cloves garlic, minced

dried parsley to taste

salt and pepper to taste

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2.  In a large bowl, mix the ground sirloin, salsa, breadcrumbs, cheese, egg and garlic.  Season with parsley, salt and pepper.  Transfer to a 9×5-inch loaf pan.

3.  Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or to a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees F.

Note:  I used “Newman’s Own” mild chunky salsa.  It is flavorful and all profits go to charity.

Enjoy and remember to always

Keep smilin’.
