Stove Top Meatloaf

This is a very quick main dish to prepare when you’re at your favorite camping spot. Another tasty thing to serve with your meatloaf is campfire potatoes. Slice a few potatoes thin, also slice up some onion, mix them together well with some salt and pepper. Add a bunch of butter, double wrap them with aluminum foil. Cook the potatoes on the edge of the fire or in the pan next to the meatloaf. It is always a tasty treat to bring along some sweetcorn on your outing. Cook the sweetcorn in the husks, or foil, right in the fire. When you husk it after it cooks, cover with lots of butter. Tastes so good your arteries won’t care.
