We challenged Tablespoon bloggers to choose a classic recipe from the "Heirloom Recipes and New Twist" section of the brand new Betty Crocker Cookbook and throw down their own spin to share with you.


Today's twist: Not Your Mama's Meatloaf, the Girl Who Ate Everything's version of Betty's classic Meat Loaf recipe.



There’s a reason that Betty Crocker’s Heirloom Recipe for Meat Loaf is one of their most requested recipes … it’s just that good. In Betty’s new "Big Red" Cookbook, this classic recipe for meatloaf is included with a couple of tasty twisted versions for those of you who are more adventurous.

Check out this video:



I don’t like mess too much with a classic, but I decided to do my own twist on the recipe by adding a little spice and a little sweetness to kick it up a notch. This is definitely not the bland and mushy meatloaf your mama used to make.

This Not Your Mama’s Meatloaf recipe will knock your socks off with adobe sauce from canned chipotle peppers for a fabulously spicy and moist meatloaf.

Another secret ingredient I add to the meat mixture is crushed saltine crackers. It adds a bit of saltiness and texture. You definitely want to make sure you use lean ground beef so that your meatloaf is not mushy.

I love the spicy-sweet combo. I topped off the meatloaf with a brown sugar and ketchup mixture.
