Country Bob's GIVEAWAY

You read that right. I am having a giveaway! And we need to get the word out. But first, I need to tell you a little something about Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce. We here in the Chilton kitchen like sauce. We like tangy, spicy foods (not the singe-your-taste-buds-off kind of spicy, but kick...just a little kick). We enjoy sauces. I will admit though, when it comes to BBQ, if I am going to splurge, it is often based on the picture on the bottle. If there is a man on the bottle, and he looks remotely "Southern" (like I can really tell, right?), then I assume, Whoa, this man must know his stuff, and I proceed to make the purchase. (Note: Country Bob's picture is on the side of the label, and he looks like he knows his stuff). Is that so wrong?

Country Bob's Meatloaf
(from Country Bob's recipe brochure)

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
12 saltine crackers, crushed
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 C. Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce
1/4 C. milk
1 T. Country Bob's Season Salt (* see note below *)
1/4 tsp. pepper

Combine the ground beef, onion, cracker crumbs, eggs, Country Bob's all Purpose Sauce, Country Bob's Season Salt, and pepper in a bowl and mix well. Shape into a loaf and place in a baking pan. Spread the desired amount of additional Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce on top of loaf. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until loaf is cooked through. Removed the loaf to a serving plate. Let stand for several minutes before slicing. Yield: 6 to 8 servings.

Sare's Notes:
1. GREAT Sauce. Thank you Country Bob's. We didn't used to be meatloaf people, until we tried an awesome recipe last year, so when I gave my husband the options in the recipe booklet, he chose meatloaf. This WAS GREAT!
2. If you notice, the recipe calls for 1 T. season salt (That means TABLESPOON). I assumed this was a typo because I have never used a recipe that calls for that much salt, so I only put a teaspoon and it was perfect. I didn't have Country Bob's Season Salt, but used regular ol' season salt and it worked.
3. This meatloaf was super moist (but that was my fault because I didn't have lean ground beef), but if yours is super moist too, let it stand before transferring to a plate or slicing.

Country Bob's is offering one of my readers their very own bottle of Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce. What a great addition to your culinary cupboard.
