Bill Cosby's Scrapple Meat Loaf
2 pounds top quality lean sirloin
1 large peeled, minced raw potato
1 egg, beaten
1/4 onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or cloves)
1/4 teaspoon hot popper
Butter (or lard)
Have butcher grind sirloin three times. Combine meat with potato, onion, eggs, cinnamon (or cloves), salt and hot pepper. Mix well with the fingers.
Butter (or grease) skillet, fill with meat mixture. Pop into preheated 500 degree oven about 20 minutes. Run under broiler to brown top. Serve alone or top with fried eggs. Serve with chili sauce. Serves 6.
Bill's Thoughts: For a looser texture, omit the egg. Improvise seasonings using sage or thyme.
