Delicious but yet easy-to-make — It really is the Best Meatloaf, with a hint of Worcestershire sauce and a touch of your favorite ketchup covering it. Serve it with some retro side dish of fresh peas and carrots.
I had an urge of something retro, something my granny cooked when I was a little girl. Yes, I was talkin’ about side dish of fresh peas and carrots, not that fancy Beef Meatloaf with ketchup on it. 🙂 I was looking for a simple meal with ground beef that could nicely be served along with granny’s peas and carrots.
My kids were very happy with that simple Beef Meatloaf as I was with those peas. Everybody was pleased. But, there is always something missing. A dessert, I presume. This meal needed a special sweet treat, and as regularly, I had something in my mind. It was thinking about one quick and easy recipe with chocolate and peanut butter. No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars was my choice, the best one.
