My dear sister gave me her meatloaf recipe which has always been a comfort food. Served with a side of mashed potatoes, healthy green spinach, salad and rolls with fresh butter. Even the finest restaurants are serving simple home-cooked recipes to bring back classic comfort food.
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1/2 onion, coarsely chopped
3/4 c. oatmeal
1/3 c. ketchup
2T. worcestershire sauce
1 T. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
Combine onion and oatmeal in processor and process until onion is finely chopped. Add eggs,
worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and ketchup and salt. Place ground beef in mixing bowl and pour contents of processor bowl over meat. Mix all ingredients and shape into a loaf on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, then top with 1/3 C. ketchup mixed with 1 T. worchestershire sauce. Continue baking for 40 minutes. Allow to sit for 10 minutes when finished.
My wish list has always held the desire for a blue dining room. I am mad for the shade of blue of this room, the eclectic assortment of chairs, and the chandelier! Enjoy this recipe and remember, no elbows on the table!
