This is not your mother’s meatloaf. Growing up, when it was “meatloaf night” I wanted to run away or pretend to be sick so I didn’t have to try to swallow down that mushy substance that contained very little meat. The gooey ketchup topping didn’t help it go down any easier either.
The last time I ate that was just before I moved out of my parent’s house, until just last year when I stumbled across a recipe for a different type of meatloaf. It piqued my interest so I decided to play around with the recipe because the spices were a bit too much and I wanted to add my own touch on it, and like every other recipe, it contained eggs, garlic and onions.
Surprisingly, it only took me two tries to perfect it. My kids couldn’t get enough of it and I was amazed at something that I once loathed, I now wanted to eat the entire thing! Remember to buy your meat from a local butcher whom has grass fed beef without ever using hormones, antibiotics, etc. You will be surprised how tender the meat is and how easily it melts in your mouth, and the taste is out of this world!
