Did a search, it'll take me a bit to add all of them.
Here's a recipe Cav posted -
JAMIE KENNEDY'S MEATLOAF
3 slices white bread, crusts removed and cut into cubes.
4 tbsp. milk
1 Spanish onion, peeled and finely diced
2 tbsp. butter
1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. ground pork
2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsely
1/4 tsp. fresh-grated nutmeg
Salt and black pepper to taste
2 cups tomato sauce, pureed, if chunky.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cook the tomato sauce over medium heat until reduced to a thick consistency, stirring frequently to avoid burning. Set aside to cool.
Put the bread in a mixing bowl and soak in the milk. Saute the onion in the butter until trasluscent and add to the bread mixture. Add the remaining meat loaf ingredients, except for the tomato sauce, mix well with your hands and transfer to a loaf pan.
Spread the reduced tomato sauce over the meatloaf and bake about 40 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 150 degrees.
At the restaurant, this was served with beef jus, sauteed potatoes and a colorful array of fancy vegetables.
And one I posted -
This last week I made meatloaf using a recipe in an old clipping of a column by Craig Claiborne and Pierre Franey. They gave recipes for Veal Meatballs with Tarragon, Pork Meatballs with Rosemary, and Beef Meatballs with Marjoram.
I had some ground pork, so I used that one - it has a tomato sauce described as well, but I skipped that.
Pork Meatballs (Meatloaf) With Rosemary
3/4 lb ground lean pork
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup finely chopped onion - I didn't have an onion, chopped 4 small shallots instead
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped garlic - I added three garlic cloves, chopped
1/4 pound mushrooms, finely chopped - I used button mushrooms this time, one could vary that. I coarsely chopped them.
1 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary - I took a sprig of rosemary from the garden and cut the leaves up coarsely.
Salt and pepper to taste.
1 cup of fine fresh bread crumbs - I used not very finely torn sourdough hearth bread that I keep for croutons or crumbs in the freezer.
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes. I used a good half teaspoon
Put ground pork in a mixing bowl.
Cook the onions (or shallots) and garlic in the olive oil until wilted. Add mushrooms, cook until they give up their liquid. Add the onion, garlic, mushroom mixture to the bowl, along with red pepper, salt and pepper to taste, bread crumbs, egg. Blend together by hand.
The recipe called for sauteing the meatballs in remaining olive oil and adding the tomato sauce. I put the mixture in a meatloaf pan instead (after adding the other two teaspoons of olive oil), put about 3/4 cup of water and a few tablespoons of marsala over the loaf.
I baked it at 375 til done, probably thirty minutes.
Boy, was that good
Those were from this thread -
Back in a bit.
Here's the 72 Market Street Recipe. That gravy is really good, as is the meatloaf.
earlier meat loaf posts from me -
- homemade meat loaf (ground beef, sauteed chopped red onion and garlic, egg, bread crumbs, sundried tomato pesto, covered with dilute beef broth).
Lots left for sammiches.
- My meatloaves vary with what's on hand... This one did have garlic and chile pepper and basil and "italian herbs", s & p, plus eggs and bread crumbs. I don't use low fat content beef, but at least 15%; sometimes add fresh hot ital sausage, or just ground pork. Usually pour some water or stock over the meatloaf in the dish before it bakes.
