Hot, Steaming Meatloaf
It's not every day that I actually make something that Ezra says he loves. In fact, it's not even every day that I cook anything tolerable, or unburnt, for that matter.
But on Monday night, Ezra took one bite of his meatloaf and said, "Mmmm! Good meatloaf!" And then he said, "This is the best meatloaf I've ever had."
That's saying a lot, because meatloaf is one of the only things I ever make.
So, because I am a kindhearted person, I am going to share this amazing recipe. Actually, I think meatloaf is a really creepy concept. But, you know, if you use good beef, it's pretty healthy.
EZRA'S FAVORITE MEATLOAF (total time, about 1 hr. 45 minutes)
1-1/2 lbs. grassfed ground beef
1 c. water
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. dried ground sage
1/2 tsp. salt or more if it's coarse-ground
1/2 tsp. ground dry mustard
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 large egg
3 slices sprouted multigrain bread, torn into small pieces
1 leftover overcooked fried egg, finely chopped
2 large kale leaves, destemmed, chopped into eensy weensy tiny tiny little bits 1/3-1/2 c. onion, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 350. Mix everything together and put in an ungreased loaf pan with a meat thermometer in center. Bake uncovered 1 to 1-1/4 hrs. until thermometer reads 160. Serves 6.
Wow, I am so domestic!!!
