It’s a rainy Sunday and I decided to want to stay home with my younger daughter and watch TV.
For dinner, I am making meatloaf, rice and beans, and broiled asparagus. I have found a simple meatloaf recipe online and it’s really moist and delicious.
For dessert, I will make a gingered fruit crisp. I will share the recipe this week.
2 lb ground beef
4 slices of bread
½ cup of milk
1 tbs olive oil
1 onion finely diced
3 cloves of garlic
¼ cup of finely chopped parsley
1 cup of parmesan cheese
1tbs of Worcestershire sauce
Pepper flakes (optional)
For the glaze:
¼ cup of brown sugar
¾ cup of ketchup
2 tbs tomato paste
1 tsp dried mustard
1 tsp paprika
1tsp granulated garlic
1 tsp granulated onion
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Put a small pan over medium heat, cook the onion and garlic in the olive oil for about 5 to 7 minutes. Allow cooling completely.
Put the slices of bread in a bowl and pour the milk over them, let them sit for a few minutes or until the bread soaks up all the milk.
In a large bowl, combine the milk-soaked bread, cooked onion and garlic, parsley, parmesan cheese, Worcestershire sauce, eggs, pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and the beef. Mix until everything is well combined but don’t over mix to avoid that the meatloaf to be tough.
Place a cooling rack over a baking sheet or a broiler pan and place the meat mixture onto it and form it into a loaf, set aside.
Mix together all the ingredients for the glaze in a bowl. Smear evenly over the top of the meatloaf. Bake the meatloaf for one hour.
750ml Prosecco, chilled – 12ounces mango nectar – Lime Wedges
Pour 2 oz of mango nectar into the bottom of each flute. Squeeze a lime wedge into each flute. Top off with the chilled prosecco, to within 1/2 inch of the top of the flutes.
Oh I love meat loaf and it’s always fun to try a new recipe! I never thought to put Worcester sauce in it! Will have to give that a try.
I love to try a new recipe and was pleased with that one, Jamie.
Your dinner looked amazing! Rainy days are so perfect to chill at home and whip up good eats. I hope you two enjoyed your time together but after this meal how could you not!
So true, Brandi.
I’ve never made meatloaf before, but your recipe looks delicious. I think I will definitely have to try out your recipe!
It is simple, you can try it Margaret.
Your take on meatloaf sounds delicious. I think I have the makings of a new comfort food right here. I especially like the mango nectar, Prosecco idea. I need a nap just thinking about the yummy dinner (I’m going to start making my shopping list now).
That’s great, Shire, most of the times, I create something with whatever I find in refrigerator and pantry.
Such a great recipe, and I loved your plating and presentation with the cute rice! Also, asparagus is very healthy to add to each meal!
Thank you for the recipe 🙂
Thank you, Narkis.
I love love meatloaf. I do something similar. I love that you have put rise and asparagus with it. Healthy, Sunday dinner.
The leftover is even better, Marcela.
I’m always amazed at how many ways there are to make the same meal. My meatloaf recipe is completely different than yours, but this looks just as delicious!
I used to put breadcrumbs in my recipe, until I found that recipe and that’s how I’ve been making it, Stephanie.
Holy cow how have i never thought to use mustand in my glaze?? Genius!!!
It adds up to the flavor, Kate.
My husband and I were just talking about meatloaf last week. We were exchanging stories about all the times our Moms made it.
My mom used to make it a different way, but as delicious as this recipe, Lynn.
I’ve been craving meatloaf! I’ll have to try this recipe.
Try and let me know, Danielle
i love meatloaf and this one looks delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Thank you, Ashlee
Meatloaf is one of my family’s favorite meals. This looks like it is an amazing version.
One of my kids’favorite as well, Deb.
Meatloaf is one of my favorites! I’ve never tried it with parmesan, I’ll have to try that.
Try and let me know, Amber.
Meatloaf is such a nostalgic meal for me- always reminds me of family dinners when I was a kid. This recipe looks delicious!
Family dinner is the best, thank you, Abby.
YUM!!! I love meatloaf. It always looks so gross while making it but it comes out delicious!
It does Arielle, and I love making a sandwich with the leftover.
This sounds like the perfect dinner to me. And I know now that my daughter really likes meatloaf. So I will have to try this out sometime soon.
I bet, she will, David.
Sunday Roast Dinner is big in the UK but we don’t have meatloaf – but I think my family would love this! Great recipe x
Sunday meal is the best, Jazmin, thank you Jazmin.
That is a seriously delicious looking meatloaf! Awesome glaze recipe too!
Thank you, Ray, it’s good and my kids enjoy it.
I was looking for inspiration on what to have for dinner tomorrow. You solved my problem! I love meatloaf and your recipe sounds great and easy to follow. Thank you!
I am glad to hear that Lucrezia.
I have never done meatloaf before. And this meatloaf looks really delicious. I will try it soon.
Try and let me know, Jake.
I’ve made meatloaf once before and it didn’t turn out as nice as yours. I think I’ll be giving this one a go!
Steve, the leftover is even more delicious!
It never crossed my mind to make a meatloaf for dinner, don’t know why. But I’ll definitely give it a try
In my house, we have meatloaf for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Leftover meatloaf for brunch is the best.
Looks so yumm.. I should try this. Adding spinach seems to be a good option. Since we do not consume much beef in India I shall try this recipe with mutton. Hope it would turn out as good as yours
Let me know how it is with mutton, so I can try next time, Menaka!
Looks delicious! We used to eat meatloaf a lot growing up, and this recipe brings me way back to childhood!
Nothing is better and sweeter than our childhood memories. Every now and then, I craved some of mine.
A home made dinner is always the best. But I need to say, when I was reading the title, I thought it said a Sunday roast. When i started to read the article, I was sure that there was a mistake somewhere, because it was a meatlove, not a roast. And than it downed on me that I misread the title
That is so funny, Jeroen, it was a delicious meatloaf recipe.
That looks good! I have never had meatloaf before (being British) but definitely looks like something I would enjoy!
You have to share some of your recipes with me, Jenn!
I have never made meatloaf in my life! But your recipe is so good that it looks like I won’t have to spend the entire day in the kitchen in order to prepare a great meal!
In order to try something, Gena, it has to be quick, easy, and delicious.
This recipe looks so good but I am vegetarian so can’t taste it. But i appreciate your efforts.
I tried to be vegetarian but it did not last. Although now one of my vegetarian friends is sharing her recipes with me and they are truly delicious.
