Meatloaf story.

Usually while thinking about my weekly menu, I ask the kids what they would like to eat that week, let me tell you they sometimes come up with the weirdest ideas !!!!! Last week one of them asked for meatloaf, but it came with a warning "but mom can you make a different one this time!!!!". I like to use this recipe from Giada which is a great one, but apparently not this time. Now, do you know how many recipes come up when you type "meatloaf recipes" on Google ????? TONS !! The choice was tough, but I finally found the right victim.

This time I didn't get a chance to take pictures of each steps, but I wanted to share this recipe with you all. It's a good one!! The picture is not the best one..


1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs (about 1 ounce)

Cooking spray
1 cup chopped onion

2 garlic cloves,chopped

1/2 cup ketchup ( I used marinara sauce instead, cause I don't really like ketchup..)

3 ounces white cheddar cheese, diced

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon prepared horseradish ( Iskipped this ingredient)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

3/4 teaspoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 1/2 pounds ground sirloin

1 large egg, lightly beaten


1. Preheat oven to 425°.

2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add breadcrumbs; cook 3 minutes or until toasted, stirring frequently.

3. While breadcrumbs cook, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Combine onion mixture, breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup ketchup, and remaining ingredients. Shape into 6 (4 x 2-inch) loaves on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; spread 2 teaspoons ketchup over each. Bake at 425° for 25 minutes or until done.
