Meatloaf

April 16, 2011

This picture doesnt look all that pretty, but this meatloaf was so tasty.

Billy has been encouraging me to make my own meatloaf recipe since I started cooking almost a year and a half ago. He was quite pleased with this one, so I think this might have to at least be the basic recipe that I spruce up over the years. This meatloaf recipe is something that I threw together. None of the recipes that I was scoping out online had quite the vibe I was looking for, so this is what I came up with, and it was wonderful. I loved the texture, as it was very compressed and a bit more like gyro meat. The flavor was outstanding too. I’m sorry to say, but it was much better than the recipe that I used for the last batch of meatloaf that I made from a friend’s recipe, which I may or may not post the recipe too anyway. So tasty.

Ingredients:

  • 3 small carrots, finely chopped
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk of celery, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cup of breadcrumbs
  • 8 oz. pork sausage
  • 8 oz. ground chicken thigh or ground turkey
  • 8 oz. ground beef
  • 1 egg
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine ingredients and mix until well blended. Put in a loaf pan and tap to make sure you don’t have any air bubbles.  Place loaf pan on a cookie sheet so that the juices don’t spill over into your oven. Bake for a half hour to 45 minutes or until a thermometer reads 180 degrees.
