Banana Meatloaf

Bermudan Entree

BANANA MEATLOAF

INGREDIENTS

½ cup bread crumbs
2 eggs
1 banana
1 small onion
1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon ground mustard
¼ teaspoon paprika
⅛ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons ketchup
6 strips bacon (3 on bottom and 3 on top)

SPECIAL UTENSILS

9″-x-5″ loaf pan
x-ray goggles

Serves 4. Takes 1 hour 20 minutes.

PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add bread crumbs and eggs to large mixing bowl. Mix with fork until well blended. Mash banana with fork. Mince onion. Add banana, onion, and all remaining ingredients except bacon to mixing bowl. Mix with hands until well blended. Place 3 bacon strips in loaf pan. Add banana/meat mix. Smooth with fork or spatula. Place 3 bacon strips on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until meatloaf is no longer pink in center. (This is easier to ascertain if you have x-ray goggles. Alternatively, lift up a tiny bit of the meatloaf with a fork and peek.)

TIDBITS

1) Again, this recipe is much easier with x-ray goggles. However, such goggles are expensive. Have you tried to buy one? I mean when you check out at WalMartTM and the checker asks you, “Did you find everything you need?” and you respond with, “No, I couldn’t find the x-ray goggles,” people will look at you askance. So you drive home sad, with your head between your knees. Wait, don’t drive like that! Not safe. Develop super-hero powers instead.

2) Here’s a list of super powers that would make preparing meatloaf a snap:
A) Flying: easier and less stressful than driving to the store for ingredients. (Like SupermanTM.)
B) X-ray vision: to see inside the loaf. (Again like Superman.)
C) Heat-impervious hands: oven mitts can never be found when you need them. (Like ???)
D) Super speed: Super fast hands blend the ingredients in no time. (like FlashTM.)
Is there a comic-book hero with all those powers? If not, create one and make big bucks.

Grit Magazine And Chocolate-Bacon Muffins Recipe

Grit magazine is still around. I saw hundreds of their ads in darn near every comic book that came out when I was growing up in the 60’s. But they never gave any indication of promoting culinary adventuring. Until now. Please enjoy the following pictures. The first one is from Sad Sack and the Sarge magazine, July, 1969. The second is from Grit magazine’s website. Enjoy.

Little Sad Sack Comics

Whenever I was small and sick for a  while, my mother  would sometimes buy me a comic book to cheer me up. My favorite comics were: Sad Sack, Little Sad Sack, and Dennis the Menace. Read the adventure below and enjoy it as I once did and still do. This story is from Little Sad Sack Comics, November, 1967, Vol. 1, No. 19. I included the issue’s advertisement for Grit, “America’s Family Newspaper.”sadsack1sadsack2sadsack3sadsack4sadsack5sadsack6
