Sauce*

  • 6 oz can of tomate paste
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 water
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

*This sauce is quite similar to homemade ketchup.

1. In a small pot, add all the sauce ingredients. Combine.

2. Place pot on a burner and gently stir until sauce begins to bubble.

3. Once the sauce begins to bubble, turn down to the lowest heat and simmer covered for 20 minutes.

4. While the sauce simmers, make the cheddar meatloaf meatballs.

  • 1 cup of diced cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp each of basil and/or oregano
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground pepper

1. In a mixing bowl, thoroughly combine all the meatloaf ingredients.

2. Form mixture into one inch diameter balls and place  meatloaf meatballs onto a lined baking sheet. (Alternatively, make into one meatloaf round and adjust baking time appropriately.)
