Hawaiian Style Meatloafsource: su-lin

I make this recipe several times a year. It is loosely based on a recipe I received from my mother-in-law decades ago. She called this meatloaf Hidden Treasures, because of the hot dogs inside.


2 pounds ground meat

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup mashed potato flakes

2  1/2 tbsp onion soup mix

1/3 cup pineapple juice

1/3 cup + 1/4 cup ketchup

2 eggs, beaten

5 hot dogs, halved lengthwise

6 pineapple rings, optional


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine ground meat, brown sugar, mashed potato flakes, onion soup mix, pineapple juice, 1/3 cup ketchup and eggs.

Place half the meat mixture into a medium baking pan. Top with the 10 hot dog halves. Arrange the rest of the meat mixture on top of the hot dogs, making a neat loaf.

Bake for one hour, covered. Remove cover. Pour out excess fat (I do this into a unwanted jar or onto the ground to avoid clogging the sink.)

Spread the 1/4 cup ketchup on top of meatloaf, and bake for another 20-30 minutes without cover.

Option 1: Top meatloaf with the pineapple rings before baking. When spreading the ketchup after the first hour, pineapple rings can also be coated.

Option 2: The mashed potato flakes can be replaced by 1/4 cup fresh mashed potatoes and 1/4 cup matzoh meal.
