How to Make Miracle Maid Meat Loaf

By LeafTV Editor

The original recipe for this meatloaf was found in the book that came with Miracle Maid waterless cookware. Originally, the meatloaf was cooked in a demo electric frying pan in butter with potatoes around it. In the 1970s, home cookware demonstrations brought families extra cash. Demonstrator wives helped men cook all-in-one meals, which was the heart of the sales pitch -- cookware that could make dinner easy enough for a man to make. However, no one read the company instructions! Each cooking demonstrator gave the newest audience a quick demo of the meal and sent them off to make their millions, and each version was a little different. The following is a recipe version that was passed down by word of mouth.

Mix well with a spoon. It is beneficial to knead this mix like bread dough. The more you knead the ingredients, the firmer the meat loaf you will obtain.
