Loaf of Meat

Meatloaf is one of those comfort-type foods that is definitely not picturesque. Good thing I always forget to take pictures!! So I loosely used a couple of different recipe to come up with this recipe that Peter quite enjoyed. So did I for that matter. There are no leftovers. But at least I used the majority of the ground beef before it went bad! I served this with a sweet potato. Love those roots!!

MeatLoaf Anne-Style
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
most of a small onion, minced
1/4 cup(ish) green pepper, minced
1/2 cup ketchup
1 egg (wasn't enough, try 2)
few dashes of Worcestershire sauce

Mix all ingredients together. Form into two loaves. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.

I LOVE meatloaf!

Hey, Anne, your comment on the last post about spaghetti reminded me to ask you - have you ever tried spelt noodles? They're pretty good, actually, although they take some getting used to.. It's one way to get around the whole wheat/pasta thing.

Anne said...

No and I've never heard of them either!! You think a health food store would have them??

Jill said...

yes, i bet they would...or you could check the 'organic' section of the supermarket. i know Trader Joe's has them....but i don't think Lafayette has one of those - yet.

Trader Joe's is EXCELLENT. I just discovered here about a month ago. Really really good food for very inexpensive prices. You can't do your everyday staple shopping there, but their food is fantastic and cheap. Not that helps you, anne. But, it's a great store.

I wish I had a Trader Joe's. Everything there is so amazing. And their staff is really helpful, too. I think the world would be a better place if there were more Trader Joe's. (And I like how on their ethnic foods it says "Trader Jose's" or "Trader Giuseppe's.")

Us Di Fabio women love TJ's too. We normally make a couple trips down to Indy a year to stock up on theIR great stuff and, of course, Charles Shaw.

Is Charles Shaw what I hear people calling "2 buck chuck"? I hear it is great
