Last winter was the first time I ate at a Cracker Barrel. Polly and I go to lunch when I'm in Florida and the place we originally picked to eat was closed. Cracker Barrel was close and I told her I never ate there so off to Cracker Barrel we went. Polly loves the meatloaf . I never tried their meatloaf and found the recipe on Food.com
Gabe and I enjoyed it and hope you do also!
2/3 cup milk
32 Ritz Crackers- Crushed*
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese- shredded
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon mustard
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F or 177 C
In a large bowl add eggs and beat.
Add the milk and the crushed crackers and stir in the onion and the cheese.
Add the ground beef and mix well.
Shape in a loaf.
I always cook my meatloaf in a large baking pan with a wire rack. I place the shaped meatloaf on the rack .
Bake for 45- 55 minutes in 350 oven.
Combine the ketchup,brown sugar and mustard in a small bowl and mix well.
Spoon or brush the topping over the meatloaf after 30 minutes of baking. Return to oven and bake for the additional time basting occasionally.
I used a sleeve and half.
Not sure if this recipe is a true copycat to what is served at Cracker Barrel. I noticed that there are many other recipes for their meatloaf. This one was really good and I'm going to make it again.
