Vintage Recipe of the Day-- 04/09/2013

Today's Recipe of the Day is a pleasant change from last week's offerings, as this one could actually be edible.  A pleasant surprise considering it's from a cookbook written to sell vegetable shortening.  The book is "Aunt Jenny's Favorite Recipes" featuring Spry vegetable shortening (It's Triple-creamed!) from Lever Brothers.

Stuffed Meat Loaf (with Onion Stuffing)

Meat Loaf Ingredients--

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1/2 lb. ground pork
4 slices bread, soaked in water* and drained
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 eggs
2 tbsp. veg. shortening**
1/2 cup chili sauce

Onion Stuffing Ingredients--

3 onions, chopped
1/4 cup, veg. shortening**
1 1/2 cups, bread crumbs
1/2 tsp. sage
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 tbsp. parsley, chopped
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp. water

*for better flavor use milk instead of water
**replace shortening with butter or olive oil

Meat Loaf Directions--

Combine beef, pork, bread, onion, salt, pepper, and eggs, mixing thoroughly.  Line bottom and sides of a greased loaf pan with meat mixture.  Fill center with onion stuffing and cover top with remaining meat.  Brush top with melted (butter) and cover with chili sauce.  Bake in 400F oven for 60 to 90 minutes, until done.

Onion Stuffing Directions--

Cook onions slowly in melted (butter) until translucent; add bread crumbs, sage, salt, pepper, and parsley.  Saute until slightly browned.  Remove from heat, and add beaten egg and water.
