Meatloaf Inspired!

Thanks to Tom, I made a meatloaf last night.  Meatloafs are great because you can put anything you want in them and get a few meals out of it.  I just did my Mom’s basic recipe: Beef, pork mixture, onions, egg, ketchup, bread, milk &  black pepper. Topped with brown sugar & ketchup mixture. Next time I will try Tom’s bacon idea.  Bob did request some gravy. (Bought gravy, yikes! I know.)  I used all of Matt’s potatoes and green peppers as a side dish. I put the chunks of potatoes, green peppers & added onions in a casserole dish with a little vegetable oil & black pepper. I just baked those for around 35 min at 425.  Somewhat healthier then fried.  They were really good and easy.  We also had a salad , so something fresh.  I love cooking this kind of comfort food as the weather turns to Fall.  Although, Bob will be grilling in the middle of winter.  We never put that thing away!

    Just to clarify: it’s Jeff’s bacon idea. I just fulfill his request for that one!

    Looks like a great dinner. I agree that the joy of meatloaf is to throw in all kinds of stuff – you forgot the zucchini, though.

    Looks delicious. I am really going to make a meatloaf this weekend! You know how it goes- I am lucky that we had pasta and veggies and rice this week!
