Awesome Meatloaf

Awesome Meatloaf

Ok…so I have been MIA lately between my daughter having strep throat a few weeks ago and me having 2 teeth pulled within a couple of weeks, I didn’t even feel like eating, so why cook?? But now that we are all back to normal, it’s time to get cooking again. We’ve been eating out or eating fast food or meals that I’ve already posted on here so now it’s time for some new recipes.

Tonight, I made an oldie but goodie…Meatloaf!!

It was super yummy and I think it was because this time I mixed in some ground pork with the ground beef and it was delicious!!

Recipe adapted from Better Homes & Gardens

2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup milk
2/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs or 2 cups soft bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley

1/2 teaspoon dried leaf sage, basil, or oregano, crushed

This was delicious and everyone loved it….except for Cheyenne.  She was in a mood tonight and wouldn’t even try it even though last time I made meatloaf, she loved it!!  I also fixed her favorite, carrots and mashed potatoes with it so she had carrots and mashed potatoes for dinner…..and no dessert!  Haha….

I’ve always made meatloaf with just ground beef before and have seen recipes and heard people talk about using turkey, pork and/or veal mixed with the beef.  I decided to try pork and it was so delicious and I think I will make it this way from now on!!

Let me know if you get a chance to try this!!

Happy Cooking!!
