Everyone loves to make fun of rednecks ... until they need one.

Redneck engineering is the epitome of taking a whole bunch of nothin's and  making something functional / wonderful / slightly insane.

Every once in a while this style even trickles into the kitchen.  We have all been there before.  Time to make dinner, and you don't have anything planned.  You go to the fridge / pantry and all you have is some leftovers and a few oddball ingredients.

So grab a bunch of stuff and cram it all together .. you may get a masterpiece .. you may get a MESSterpiece .. the only way to find out is to try it.

Step 1: Ingredients

I cook for a small army so the portions I cook in are larger than most people need, but it shouldn't be to difficult to reduce the recipe to fit your needs.

Nothing in this recipe is precisely measured, all given quantities are "best guess" only.

The last bit of leftover pulled pork - approx 2 cups
Pulled pork Au Jus - about 1.5 cups
Shredded mild cheddar - a heaping handful
the last bits of the sliced American cheese from the deli - I think it was 6 slices
mozzarella string cheese snacks - 2 sticks
Parmesan shake cheese - about 1/3 cup
ground beef ( 80/20 if you care) - roughly 3 lbs
eggs - 3
Ketchup - a big glop (probably somewhere between 1/4 and 1/3 of a cup)
BBQ sauce (honey flavor) - a big glop
onion soup mix - 1 packet
shake 'n bake Italian seasoning (because I couldn't find the bread crumbs) - 1 packet
LOL...I love your redneck story!!! This recipe sounds sooooo unique and tasty! I just LOVE unique recipes! I've tried meatloaf cupcakes with mashed potatoes as the frosting...it's a cute way to serve meatloaf! I think this would work great as that! =)
It was really good meatloaf. I am planning on making pulled pork again soon just so i can try my planned modifications for his recipe. :) <br>Meatloaf cupcakes with mashed taters frosting sounds like a great dinner to make with the kids one night hehe
I cannot wait to make this!
After looking at <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Meatloaf-Cupcakes/" rel="nofollow">krysteanuh's meatloaf cupcakes</a>, I really want to try this recipe again with oatmeal instead of the italian flavored shake 'n bake that I used
Ohhhhhhhh my god. I want it and need it
it was very tasty. Talking with a co worker, she recommended baking the meatloaf in cupcake tins to make individual portions (after a quick IBLE search I realized it has already been done several times, so I will defer to their excellent write ups rather than make my own) Which I think is a great idea.
