Smoky Meatloaf (after a Migraine)

I created this dish today because last night I had a migraine for first time in at least a year, and today I woke up famished. Nothing I could eat immediately appealed to me, though.

I looked in the fridge, and I looked in the cupboards. These are some of the things I took from what I saw:

  • 2 lbs medium ground beef
    1 cup of Ritz crackers
    1/3 medium spanish onion, finely chopped
    1 3 oz tin whole smoked oysters
    2 large eggs
    3 oz old cheddar
    1/2 cup mayonaise
    2 tbsp barbecue sauce
    1 tbsp Maroun’s Garlic Spread
    1 tbsp crushed peppercorns
    2 tsp cayenne pepper
    2 tsp worcestershire sauce
    1 tsp salt

This is what I did with them:

  1. Grated the cheddar.
  2. Finely crushed the crackers with the salt, peppercorns, and cayenne pepper. Added the smoked oysters and onion; mixed with a fork until oysters were well broken up and the mixture was clumping. Added the Garlic Spread, eggs, mayonaise, barbecue sauce, and worcestershire sauce and mixed until creamy and even.
  3. Added the concoction to ground beef and mixed by hand as well as possible. Placed in a glass baking dish.
  4. Pre-heated the oven to 350°F. Put the meatloaf in for 55 minutes (at which point I will remove it and top it with the cheddar and put it back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes.)

After the hour I will remove the dish and let the meatloaf rest for 10 minutes before serving myself. Then I will taste it and see if it’s as good as I expect it to be.
