This is my husband's favorite meal. Period. Favorite. I started making this when we were dating (my mom has been making it for years and years) and he was in love. Hands down, if I ever ask him what he wants for dinner, this is it. It's super easy...can be prepared in advance and then popped in the oven at the last minute...and you probably already have all of the ingredients on hand. Served with a side of mashed potatoes, this is a man's dinner. A real man's dinner.
1 pound ground beef
1 cup Saltine cracker crumbs (that's about 12 crackers)
2 eggs, beaten
1 onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, divided
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 cup ketchup
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon mustard
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix ground beef, cracker crumbs, eggs, onion, salt, 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, and tomato sauce in a bowl. Put in a greased 9x9 inch baking dish, bake 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine remaining 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, brown sugar and mustard in a bowl. Once 40 minutes is up, top casserole with sauce and return to oven for 15 minutes.
That's it! If you ever need to cook for my husband, please make him this. He won't be disappointed!
