Mexican Meat Loaf
Use your favorite meat loaf recipe but only make about half the normal size. Before baking, spread meat loaf mixture out in a thin rectangular
layer 8" wide for an 8" loaf pan. Spread a thin layer of Miners Mix Chorizo on top of the meat loaf mix. Spread a thin layer of refried beans on
top of chorizo, then a layer of shredded cheese (jack and cheddar seems to taste the best). Roll the meat loaf up jelly roll fashion and place into
the baking dish, seam side down and bake until done.
Miners Mix roasted Cauliflower
Heat the oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Spray lightly with PAM.
Carefully cut out the core of each head of cauliflower, then cut the heads into small florets. Place the florets in a large bowl and drizzle with the
olive oil. Toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle with about 2 teaspoons of Miners Mix Steak and Veggie Rub plus 1 teaspoon of salt, tossing to coat.
Arrange the florets in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Roast for 30 minutes, then rotate the tray in the oven 180° and roast for
another 30 minutes, or until the florets are deeply caramelized and golden.
