Campfire Recipes – Can Cooker Applesauce Meatloaf

Next month marks the annual NRA Great Outdoor Show and one of our favorite vendors Seth McGinn’s Can Cooker. To kick off the season properly I am going to share some of their recipes that we like.

  • 1 ½ lb ground beef
  • ½ lb ground pork
  • ½ cup finely diced onions
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Spray non-stick cooking spray inside a loaf pan and add the mixture. Spray non-stick cooking spray inside CanCooker and pour in 20 oz of water. Insert the pan with the meatloaf mix. Close lid and latch. Put on a medium/low cooking surface and once it starts steaming cook for 75 minutes.

Remove from the cooking surface and let stand 15 minutes. Carefully remove meatloaf from cooker, slice and serve with your favorite side dishes.

Note: You can increase or decrease the amount of ingredients in this recipe but please make sure to use at least 12 oz. of liquid.
