I had a couple of requests
for my meat loaf recipe....
so, here it is!
Nothing flashy or anything
just a reliable ol' recipe
for a week night dinner.
The leftovers do make a
nice sandwich the next day for lunch!
Here we go, Glitterinas, let's make
some meat loaf.
Begin with a pound of lean ground beef in a
Add two eggs....
...... 3 shakes of worchestershire sauce....
Next, add 2-3 tablespoons of catsup,
I don't measure this, I just give it a good squirt!
A smaller squirt of plain, yellow mustard...
1 tablespoon of minced onions....
1 tablespoon of parsley....
all go into the mixture.
Mix, mix, mix.....
sometimes I use my hands to mix....
but when I'm taking pictures,
the spatula does all the work!
The last ingredients added are
4 tablespoons of plain breadcrumbs
4 tablespoons of panko breadcrumbs.
Stir well and spoon mixture into
a loaf pan.
I don't pack it down too hard....
just lightly, so it will bake into a nice loaf
that will slice and serve well.
My husband's favorite food in the world is
so, a couple of strips of bacon go on top....
.....with a squiggle of catsup!
Gigi's meat loaf is ready for the oven!
Bake at 350 degrees for about 55 minutes
and check for doneness....
the edges should be bubbly and brown and the
bacon should look cooked but won't
be as brown and crispy
as when it's cooked in a skillet.
Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes
if needed for doneness.
Remove the meat loaf from the oven
and let it sit for 15 minutes before serving.
Serve by slicing the meat loaf just like you'd
cut a loaf of bread.
Refrigerate any leftovers and
enjoy them the next day in a yummy sandwich.
I hope you'll give this a try if you
don't already have a favorite meat loaf recipe!
thank you so much, Glitterinas,
for stopping by
and letting me share
recipes, crafts, decorating,
some of the random thoughts
that cross through my
ol' frazzled brain!
