You can find us every Saturday at the Carmel Farmers Market (8-11:30 a.m.) and the Fishers Farmers Market (8 a.m.-noon) through the end of September (with the only exception, the Fishers Farmers Market will be closed on 6/29 for the SPARK! festival)

Mom's Meat Loaf

This is my go-to meat loaf recipe, which comes from Peg Peters (the sweet mama of one of our college friends).  I typically make it in a loaf pan but have also made it in a muffin pan, which my young children enjoy. 



  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup finely crushed crackers or breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 diced onion
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • a dash of pepper
  • 3/4 lb ground beef and 3/4 lb ground pork (or, try with our bacon burger, which is a blend of our ground beef, ground pork, and natural-cure bacon)
  • Few splashes of Worcestershire sauce (optional)


  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add milk, crackers, salt and pepper. Add pork and beef and mix well.
3. Shape into a loaf in an ungreased baking pan.
4. Combine sauce ingredients and spread over the meat loaf. Bake for 60 to 65 minutes. If using a muffin tin, reduce baking time accordingly (about 45 to 50 minutes).  Once baked, let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
