The weather is dreary here in the Northeast which brings wishes for all kinds of comfort foods. One of my favorites was always meatloaf and my grandma’s was a tasty treat covered with a tomato sauce and stuffed with two hard boiled eggs.
However, I must say my sister has totally redefined meatloaf for me! She has come up with this easy recipe and it’s totally delicious. Here goes:
- 2 (two) pounds lean ground meat
1 soft potato roll (or other soft bread/roll)
1 cup milk
1 cup ketchup
1 package Knorr brown gravy mix
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 325.
Soak soft roll in the milk.
Add eggs and ketchup to roll/milk combo and mix together.
Add brown gravy mix and stir.
Finally, add meat, mix with your hands and finish with salt and pepper to taste.
Lightly grease a loaf pan and add meat mixture.
Cook at 325 for about one and a half hours.
I have to tell you that this meatloaf is totally yummy. Never dry and the flavor is rich. We never even use any gravy on it, although that would be good. Especially if you were having it next to some creamy mashed potatoes and buttery green peas.
Comfort food. Delicious. I haven’t tried this with ground turkey for those of us who are trying to lose weight, but just be mindful that some of that ground turkey has as much fat as a really lean ground beef.
