Best Spaghetti Sauce…Ever. {Recipe}

If you were to come to my house on spaghetti night, you’d probably swear we were Italian. But we aren’t. The closest we come to Italy is my grandmother’s name is Florence…like the Italian town.

Which is ironic because this amazing spaghetti sauce recipe was perfected by the same grandmother years ago. Originally found in the Betty Crocker Cookbook, she has tweaked it to make it more delicious and it eventually became her own.

The recipe as found in my grandmother's Betty Crocker Cookbook, which is obviously tried and true.

Be careful. This will ruin you for any store-bought sauce.

Florence’s Spectacular Spaghetti Sauce
1 lb. ground sirloin
1 C. minced onion
1 tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
3 T. Worcestershire sauce
16 drops Tabasco
2 (8 oz.) cans tomato sauce
2 (6 oz.) cans tomato paste
1½-2 C. water
1 tsp. oregano
½ tsp. sugar
1 T. ketchup

Brown sirloin and onion.  Drain.  Add slowly a mixture of the remaining ingredients.  Cover and simmer 30 minutes.

I’m feeling generous today, so I’ll also include our famous family recipe for ghetto bread. Yes, ghetto bread. Because it’s really ghetto, but really good.

Ghetto Bread
Whatever kind of sliced bread you have (I told you this was ghetto)
Spreadable Butter
Garlic Powder
Parmesan Cheese
Italian Seasoning

Spread butter on bread. Sprinkle other ingredients on top. Place in 350* oven for about 5 minutes, until bread is toasty and bubbly on top. Let the goodness melt in your mouth.

  1. I don’t agree with the crossing out of olive oil, it needs it for the richness – I’m a huge olive oil fiend, it is just too good. But the recipe sounds really good apart from that – plenty of tomatoes and goodness, I hate it when people have too much mince in the mixture, it spoils it a little for me. Thanks for sharing 😀
