Marvy Meatloaf

January 28th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

My hubby is a meatloaf lover. I have tried various recipes through the years, and I think I have finally found one that he loves. I have been buying enough meat to make four one pound loaves at a time. I purchased two glass loaf pans at a garage sale last summer giving me a total of 4. So, when I want to do meatloaf, I make up four of them, and freeze three of them.

The recipe is a combination of a different ones. This is for one one pound meatloaf.

1/2 pound ground chuck
1/2 pound ground pork sausage
1 onion chopped,
1 green bell pepper chopped.
1 cup of catsup, separated into 2 1/2 cups
1 egg
1/2 cup of instant unflavored oatmeal
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup mustard, separated into 1/4 cup portions
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon Tumeric
1 teaspoon Paprika
1 teaspoon dried Basil

Topping: (from the above ingredients) 1/2 cup catsup, 1/4 cup mustard, 1/2 cup brown sugar mixed together

Brown onion and bell pepper in olive oil. Add garlic near the very end so it doesn't burn. Take off heat and cool.

Mix the hamburger and sausage with the Tumeric, Paprika, and Basil. Add egg, oatmeal, and bread crumbs and mix with 1/2 cup catsup and 1/4 cup mustard. Add the cooled onion, pepper, and garlic. If the mixture is still too wet, add more breadcrumbs. Form a loaf and put in a greased glass loaf pan. Spoon topping over and put foil on top. Bake at 400 degrees F for an hour. Take out of oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

I have served this recipe over and over and dh loves it and a friend of ours will make a special trip to our house if he knows we are having this meatloaf.

Tonight we are having the meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans,and homemade bread. DH thinks it is a perfect comfort meal for a wintery night.

    My favorite kind of meal...

    My grandmother used to make her Meatloaf Surprise, which had a hard-boiled egg in the center.

    I've also done mini meatloafs baked inside jumbo-sized muffin tin, which freeze very well and are instant portion control.
