Meatloaf and Mickey T's Spices

Andrew and I mixed up some meatloaf. He was excited to help me. He wanted very much to play his game but I told him I had to get dinner together and he was welcome to help me. He did a great job NOT pouring in the ketchup and mustard before it was time. I even had to get a new ketchup bottle open and thought surly he'd dump it in but he waited for my signal..mostly. I did remind him a time or two but it is still progress.

Another note- this past week Mark and I celebrated 15 years of marital bliss:) I love my hubby. This pan was given as a shower gift...and I don't believe it has ever been used. It still had the wrapper on finally off it came to be used.
Oh- the recipe:

1/2 cup oatmeal in the magic bullet (or blender)
2 eggs whipped
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup dijon mustard
1 TBS Mickey & T's All American Seasoning*
3/4 lb ground beef**
3/4 lb ground veal

Mix above together with hands and put in loaf pan or form in a ball on a cookie sheet. Cook in a 350F oven. Cook to 155 degrees F (approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours.) Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.

* I originally bought the seasoning at an art fair. I questioned Mickey and he does not use 'additives' in the seasonings. You can order online. I had read at one time that some of the seasonings were available at Holiday Market in Royal Oak but I don't see that on the website at this time. This is a mixture of a bunch of spices and is VERY good. Most of his seasonings do not have salt. This one does. My two other favs are the rib rub and the Mexican. Because we don't use those nasty taco packets (with wheat- not to mention other junk) it is great to sprinkle on meat or beans to make tacos.

** You can use any combination of meat to add up to 1 1/2 lbs.
