Favorite Food Memories - Scott Hutcheson

Close your eyes and think about one of your favorite food memories. Okay, got it? Tell us about it.


Scott Hutcheson, who writes about food, family, and community, joins us this morning to talk about our favorite food memories.  Scott is also an awesome cook.  Below is the recipe he shared with us this morning.



Mom’s BBQ Meatloaf

1 pound lean ground beef

½ pound ground mild breakfast sausage

1 teaspoon Kosher salt

½ yellow onion, finely chopped

1 cup milk

2 cups crushed corn flakes

3 eggs well beaten


Place ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with hands. Shape into a rectangle shaped loaf (about 10” x” 4 x 2” high) and place on a 9-13 parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover with one-half of sauce (see recipe below), and bake at 375 degrees for 50-60 minutes or when the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. Makes about six servings.



2 cups catsup

½ cup water

3 tablespoons white vinegar

2 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce


Add all ingredients to a medium nonreactive saucepan and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for ten minutes. Pour half of sauce on loaf prior to baking. Preserve the other half to serve with the meatloaf


Note: I’ve tied this recipe using ground turkey, turkey sausage (usually available in the freezer section), and egg substitutes. It works well and reduces the fat and cholesterol.
