1/2 cup water
2 T butter
2 pounds ground beef
1 pound ground turkey
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 – 2 1/2 cups plain breadcrumbs
Preheat oven to 350 F with two loaf pans inside.
Put the butter and water in a large bowl and microwave for about a minute, or until the butter is melted. Add the beef and turkey, then the egg. (Don’t add the egg first because you’ll cook it.) Add the spices and the breadcrumbs. Work everything together with your hands until uniform.
When the oven is preheated divide the meat mixture between the two loaf pans, patting it down to fill the pans. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
