Raise your hand if you’re a busy parent trying to save time and money.
Most of you?
Yep, me too.
While I’m usually an efficient machine during the school year, planning out lunches and cranking out dinners like no one’s business, I have to admit that I’ve become slack during the summer months, ingrained summer-vacation mentality. Yep, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
However, I did find this recipe and decided to try it because my kids are at home during the day this summer, and it’s something easy for them to heat up for lunch, a good protein and super filling. I will admit, we added cheese on top!
Because Angus ground chuck is on sale this week at Brookshire’s, I’m buying double and freezing these bad boys!
1 lb ground chuck
1/2 bottle Heinz Chili Sauce
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup panko
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Mix ingredients and place in a lightly greased loaf pan. Pour remaining chili sauce over loaf and bake at 400° F for 45-55 minutes, or until thoroughly done. Sprinkle cheese on top. Let melt; serve immediately.
