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
Step 2: Puttin' it Together
Put all the ingredients in a big mixing bowl and get in there with both hand. Mix, mash, moosh, and smoosh until everything is well blended.
Wash your hands.
Grab your baking dish. I used a deep dish 9 x 13 glass baking dish.
Transfer your meatloaf from the mixing bowl to the baking dish.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
