Italian Meatloaf

I make a meatloaf at least twice every month–sometimes three or four times. It is one of my favorite meals and then those meatloaf sandwiches the next day are always such a great delight!

Each meatloaf is often a unique recipe, depending upon what I have in the kitchen. Sometimes I add celery, sometimes I do not. Sometimes oats instead of bread crumbs, sometimes not. Sometimes Parmesan cheese, sometimes not. Sometimes I use a ground beef, pork and lamb; sometimes ground turkey. I am simply not too fussy when it comes to making a meatloaf.

A few weeks ago, however, I heard the host of a PBS cooking show proclaim to his kitchen assistant as if he had just come down from Mt. Sinai with the 11th commandment: \”Remember how to make the meatloaf as There is only one way to make the meatloaf!\”

I was, as I am sure you can imagine, quite taken aback. Only one way? As far as I am concerned that is like saying there is only one way to roast a chicken or turkey; one way to make a tomato pasta sauce; one way to make a tuna fish salad sandwich; one way to kiss your loved one–ok, here I will say there is only one way and that is to kiss passionately.

Without any further comments about commandments, or kissing, here is my Italian Meatloaf recipe:

Ingreidents

1 pound meatloaf mix
1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
1 cup bread crumbs
2 carrots, grated
2-3 tablespoons parsley, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
2 eggs
2 tablespoons stock
1 medium onion, finely diced

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400.
2. Mix all the above ingredients. Put into a greased baking dish. Shape into loaf. Bake for 30-40 minutes.

I served this with wild rice and spinach cooked with sliced garlic. And the next day, voila, a meatloaf sandwich:

P.S.
Of course, there is only way to make the meatloaf
as there is to kiss; always with passion, with love.
