YUMMY! I have cooked for years, but decent meatloaf has always escaped me! Mine always fall apart, or are dry or just generally a reason to eat out!
I made these today, and did meatballs, with the intention of meatball sub sandwiches. I read through the other reviews, and toasted the bread first, then broke it into little pieces, and used milk to soak it instead of water. I also added some Frank's hot sauce, cuz my whole family likes a little of it in recipes.
I decided to try something a little different (for me, anyway). I pan-fried the meatballs first, to make sure they had a nice brown coating on them. I also rolled them in cracker crumbs before frying for extra hold-togetherness, but they really didn't need it. After a quick pan-fry (not to complete done-ness, but just to brown them up), I put them in a crock pot where I had already put 2 sliced onions in the bottom. I put the meatballs in there, and added about 2 cups of liquid - I used hot water and dissolved two beef boullion cubes, then added some more steak sauce and black pepper to it, then poured the liquid over the meatballs and onions.
After about an hour, I turned everything over carefully (the meatballs will break apart some if you are too rough) to make sure nothing got dried out. By dinner time, the onions were so nicely browned, and everything smelled heavenly! Had hubby pick up fresh hoagie buns on the way home from work, and we had these meatball hoagies with pasta salad. Oh my goodness! It was GRE
