    • 6 ounces smoked ham, diced (Cure 81 preferable)

    • 3 (16 ounce) cans small red beans, drained (not kidney beans)

    • 2 cups water

    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

    • ½ teaspoon dried celery seed

    • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste

    • Add chopped onion, garlic, bell pepper, and diced ham, and cook until tender.

    • Stir in drained beans, water, thyme, celery seed, salt, Cajun spice blend, and Tabasco sauce.

    • Bring mixture to a gentle boil, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.

    • Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    • If mixture becomes too thick, add water as needed.

    • Mash a few of the beans with the back of a spoon to thicken sauce to desired consistency.

  • Meat Loaf Florentine

    Gold Coast Garlic Shake Spice Blend

    This is a flavorful and moist meatloaf recipe with a twist. The addition of spinach and a unique garlic shake provides an extra depth of flavor, making this meatloaf a comforting and nutritious meal. Best served with a side of mashed potatoes and green beans for a classic, homestyle dinner.

    Serves: 6


    • 1 large egg

    • ½ cup water

    • ¾ cup uncooked old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats

    • 1½ pounds 90% lean ground beef (or beef and pork combination)

    • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen spinach, thawed and well drained

    • ½ cup small onion, chopped

    • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

    • 2½ teaspoons Gold Coast Garlic Shake Spice Blend

    • ½ teaspoon coarse ground black pepper


    • In a large bowl, blend the egg, water and oats, and let sit for 5 minutes.

    • Add ground beef, spinach, onion, mustard, Gold Coast Garlic Shake, and black pepper to the bowl. Mix all ingredients thoroughly using a fork to maintain the texture.

    • Form the meat into a loaf and bake in a 350-degree oven for 45 minutes, or until fully cooked and no pinkness remains.

    • Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes to firm up before slicing.

    • To ensure the meatloaf is cooked properly, use a meat thermometer. It should register 160 degrees at the center of the loaf. Drain the juices after the loaf has firmed up to ensure it remains juicy and not dry. If desired, use the pan juices to make a gravy.
