Kooking with Ken

USS Midway Meat Loaf


Sorry for the advertisement, but this site costs money to operate and donations didn't cover it.
A few years back, we visited San Diego Aircraft Carrier Museum. In the galley was a cookbook for how to prepair meals for a hundred people at one time. I include some of the recipes for fun, but should your ship come in, you can now feed the crew.

30 lbs. Beef, ground, bulk, raw, 90% lean
3 3/4 lbs. Breadcrumbs
1/4 cup 2 1/3 tsp. Salt
1 tbs. Pepper, black, ground
1 tbs. Garlic powder
1 cup Milk, nonfat, dry
1 qt. 1 1/2 cup Water
1 lbs. Celery, fresh, chopped
1 lbs. Onions, fresh, chopped
1 lbs. Peppers, green, fresh, shopped
1 qt. 1 1/2 cup Eggs, whole, frozen
1 qt. 1 3/4 cup Juice, tomato, canned

  1. Combine beef with breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, and garlic; mix until well blended.
  2. Reconstitute milk.
  3. Add milk, celery, onions, peppers, eggs, and tomato juice. Mix lightly but thoroughly. DO NOT OVER MIX.
  4. Place 11 pounds, 6 ounces meat mixture into each steam table pan and divide into 2 loaves per pan.
  5. Using a convection oven, bake 1 hour, 15 minutes at 300 F. Internal temperature must reach 155 F. or higher for 15 seconds. Skin off excess fat and liquid during cooking.
  6. Let stand 20 minutes before slicing. Cut 13 slices per loaf. Hold for service at 140 F. or higher.
