I thought it would be fun to blog about the new recipes I try [and share some I love]. I figure that if the recipe sucks, then maybe someone out there reading can help me out. If it is wonderful then it will be there for you to try too.
Today, I tried a meat loaf. We really aren't meat loaf kind of people but since the hubby got his wisdom teeth pulled it was on the list of foods he can eat. The forming of the loaf was not successful and I ended up with meat mush but it actually tastes a lot better than it looks. Even the hubby asked for seconds. It isn't nearly as good as my old boss Chona's meat loaf but good enough for now.
And of course you have to have a starch with a veggie so homemade mashed potatoes and carrots it is.
Now for the recipe [suggestions are more than welcome!]
1 egg 3 tbsp of chopped onion
1/4 cup of milk 1/2 lb of ground beef
1/3 cup of garlic bread crumbs dash of salt and pepper
In a bowl, beat the egg. Add milk, bread crumbs, onion, salt, and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into two loaves; place in a shallow baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray.
1 1/2 tbsp of brown sugar 1 tbsp of mustard
1/4 cup of ketchp 1/2 tbsp of vinegar
Combine the ketchup, brown sugar; spoon over meat loaves. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees F; drain.
It really was a lot better than I expected and a good first pancake flop. Maybe I will go ask Chona for her recipe.
