“FLING” MEATLOAF – November 15 – National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day

Serves 6


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • ⅓ cup milk, half and half, heavy cream (Whatever you have in the refrigerator)
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ cup chili sauce
  • Misc leftovers
  • ½ pound bacon
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste


  1. This recipe “flings” your leftovers into a meatloaf.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  In a large mixing bowl add the ground beef, egg, onion, milk, carrots, garlic, chili sauce(I use “Homemade Chili Sauce”).  Mix together.  Go to your fridge and look for different leftovers or foods that need to be used.  Examples:
  2. Baked or mashed potatoes
  3. Uncooked pork chops
  4. Uncooked steak
  5. Vegetables i.e. celery, green beans, bell pepper, tomatoes,  parsnips,  Brussel sprouts, eggplant,  zucchini, etc.
  6. Place all of the items you found in a food processor and pulse until well mixed, then add to the mixing bowl.  Mix everything together.  Place in a glass bread pan, or large casserole dish.  Top with the bacon.  Bake for 45-60 minutes, until done.  Drain excess grease.  Serve with salt and black pepper.

Tomorrow: November is National Vegan Month.  Tomorrow’s recipe will be vegan.
