It's meatloaf night at the DeeLee house! BUT, I got home and realized I didn't have any bread crumbs! Sooooo...I took the Crunchy Green Bean snack I told you about earlier and crushed them up. They worked perfectly as a replacement for bread crumbs, and I know it's all healthy too!
Then, I realized I didn't have any tomato paste. So, I went searching through the fridge and found homemade apple butter! Perfect! It will act as a thickening agent!
DeeLee's Meatloaf Recipe
1 lb. extra lean ground beef
4 cloves garlic
1 handful fresh parsley
2 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
4 tbs. beef stock
1 tbs. homemade apple butter
1 tbs. thyme
1 cup ground Crunchy Green Bean snack (replacement for bread crumbs)
salt and pepper
Saute onion, apple, and garlic until tender. Add thyme, worcestershire, beef stock and let reduce for 1 minute. Then, add homemade apple butter.
Add sauted mixture to large bowl with ground beef, egg, ground green beans, fresh parsley, salt and pepper. Combine all ingredients, then form into a loaf on a large baking sheet.
Bake 350 and hour. In the last 15 minutes, add topping. Recipe below:
2 tbs. ketchup
1/2 tbs. sirachi (I like it HOT! You can skip and just add more ketchup.)
1 tbs. honey
couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce

Good for you, Ty. I support your courage and hope you can be a role model...
Meghan Trainor (who sings "All About That Bass") steps up to the mic and belts out an AWESOME version of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off"! This is addicting! Check it out.
