Each week, Let’s RV will publish one recipe each week from the RV Centennial Cookbook authored by Evada Cooper.
The book features a collection of recipes submitted by RVers themselves. The company is providing the recipes in hopes of encouraging RVers to submit more recipes to be included in a new edition expected to be published soon.
This week’s recipe is for healthy meatloaf. It was submitted by Bob DeSanti, of Grass Valley, Calif. He has been a full-time RVer since 1999. He tows a 33-foot, three-slide Holiday Rambler fifth wheel with a 400-hp Volvo semi registered as a motorhome. After an 8-year absence, they have rejoined Escapees Club and Workamper News.
- 1 pound ground chicken
- 1/2 pound pork
- 1 pound ground lamb
- 1.5 cups of course oatmeal
- 3-4 cloves of fresh minced garlic
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 3 tablespoons of hotsauce
- 1 cup finely chopped onion
- 1/2 cup finely chopped green or red bell pepper
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup chopped carrots
- 1 tablespoon curry
- 1 tablespoon oregano
- 1 tablespoon rosemary
Pre-heat oven to 425 F. Mix all ingredients and form into one or two separate meatloaves. Make certain free-form is fairly solid and doesn’t sag, or place in bread form or similar pan. Add a few light cross cuts across tops of loaves and pour a bit of ketchup over them. Bake for 45 minutes. Lower oven to 300 degrees and bake an additional 30 minutes. Remove and tilt forms so any excess oil will drain until cool. Serve with a side of mashed sweet potatoes, greens and a small salad.
