I had an "a-ha" moment in the kitchen yesterday. Ever had one of those? I was getting ready to make a new meatloaf recipe (below) and I didn't have dry bread crumbs. So I almost just didn't make it....then it came to me----toast the bread, then you will have dry bread crumbs. DUH!!!
Do you have an "a-ha" moment you can share?
This meatloaf recipe is the very best I have ever tasted. This recipe was given to my daughter, Mandie (21), from a friend who worked at a "up-scale" hotel. She got it from the chef. When my husband tasted it he said, "This is even better than mine." He thinks he makes the greatest meatloaf. My meatloaf, on the other hand, was never a big hit. Always tasteless and dry....but no more
2 pounds ground beef
3/4 Cup chopped onion
1/2 Cup chopped pepper
2 cloves garlic
1 1/2 Cups dry bread crumbs
1 Cup parmesan cheese
3/4 Cup marinara sauce
1/3 Cup milk
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
2 Tablespoons worcesterhire sauce
2 Tablespoons A-1 sauce
2 flashes tabasco sauce
Mix all ingredients well. Shape into 2 loaf pans.
1/2 Cup ketchup
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
Spread glaze over each loaf.
Bake 350 degrees for 55- 60 minutes
I baked one and froze the other. I wrapped the one I froze in several layers of plastic wrap and one layer of tin foil.
I want to try this with ground turkey, too
Please share one of your great recipe finds! I'm always looking for new recipes to try :)
