Maybe I’m one of the last people on earth who like meatloaf. Maybe meatloaf has fallen out of favor. Maybe meatloaf is the leper of the modern kitchen. I don’t care. I eat it anyway 🙂 This recipe is fast, and involves no special ingredients. It is excellent with fresh green beans and potatoes au gratin.
2 lb grass-fed ground beef (i used venison)
2 tsp garlic salt
2 tsp onion powder
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
2 free range eggs
If you would like to make this extra nourishing, this is an excellent meal in which to hide certain ingredients. Such as liver, heart or kidneys. I grind up 1/2 of one cow liver in the food processor and mix it right in with the rest. You never even know it’s there.
Mix all ingredients. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour.
Now we need to figure out a way to make meatloaf more beautiful, so it will be more popular. Maybe meatloaf pans should be heart-shaped. It also has such a boring, utilitarian name. MEAT. LOAF. It should be something french and fancy like boeuf soufflè supreme. Or perhaps it could be a spicy and spanish dish called La Tortã Carne (I think that means beef cake, but spanish class was a very, very long time ago). Any other ideas? We really need to help meatloaf out, he’s getting a bad name.
