I know, I know. I should know how to make meatloaf. As I said in previous posts, I'm a "beginner" in the kitchen.

I could figure it out myself, but I'm wondering if anybody has any sure-fire yummy meatloaf recipies.

Does anybody make it on a regular basis & want to share?

My family raves over this recipe:

Individual Meat Loaves:

1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 pound beef
1/2 cup oats (regular or quick cooking)
1/2 cup chopped onion if desired - I skip it when cooking for kids!

Mix all together and form into 8 small loaves

Topping: (the meatloaf is good with or without the topping)

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp mustrad
2/3 cup ketchup

mix together and spread on tops of loaves.

Bake loaves (with topping on) for 40 minutes at 350 - uncovered. I think they cook best in a greased glass pan. Watch them closely - they get brown fast if left in too long!

They also freeze great!

Servings: Kids usually eat one and adults 2 loaves a piece!

Enjoy!

Susan

generally you need

1lb meat
1 egg
some sort of starch bread rice (use instant or already cooked if not) pasta, anything will really work
tomato sauce

then just add whatever is in your fridge
onions, green peppers, jalapenos, almost any veggie is good....
then whatever herbs you feel like.

I am not very good at sticking to recip[es which is why I cannot bake

Not all those who wander are lost

Here's what I like to make:
1pgk (1lb or so) extra lean ground turkey breast
1 med-lg onion, chopped
several cloves garlic, pressed
about 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
TBSP or so fresh rosemary and thyme
dash of ground sage (our plant isn't quite ready to use fresh)
a little salt, fresh ground black pepper
a dash of tamari
1 egg
about 3-4 slices of bread, cut into small cubes

mix this disgusting mash up, press into loaf pan or form it in a larger metal pan (my preference). Spread the top with some yellow mustard, then carefully spread ketchup over that (try it, it's good! My mom made it this way...) Bake for a good hour, at 350 (I think it's 350, shoot, not 100% sure!)

The very best is the leftovers in cold meatloaf sandwiches...

I ate a lot of (beef) meatloaf growing up, missed it as a vegetarian (never got ambitious enough to try lentils or something like that), and when I stared eating some poultry again, thought, "Turkey loaf!"

YUM!

My husband is a diabetic so we don't use ketchup. I use
1# of ground beef,
1 can of tomato sauce low sugar (It's the larger can)
1-2 tsp Italien seasoning
2 eggs
1 cup rolled oats
1 chopped onion
2-3 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
-you can also add bell peppers, olives, capers, jalapenos, what ever other veggies you want.

After it's all mixed up I spread it onto cling wrap and lay in mozzerella cheese and thin sliced ham. I then kind of fold the beef mixture in half and press into a meatloaf pan and bake at 350 for 45-60 min. You can pm me if you have any questions about how to do this.

All of these recipes sound so good. We should come up with a mothering cook book!
