Basic Meatloaf

It shall soon be February and that marks the return of our weekly fresh box, this is a container filled with local and organic fruits and vedge that a local company called Fresh Options puts together for us. We had to give it up for a few weeks to get the Christmas bills paid for, so I am excited that this week we are getting to snack on fruit again.

This is my basic meatloaf, I do like meatloaf but in my opinion it should not be cooked in a loaf pan, it should be free formed by hand and cooked on a baking sheet so that the extra fat can run off.


The Hardware
Baking sheet

The Software
3 cloves of Garlic minced
2 lb of ground beef
1 egg
1 C of cornflake crumbs
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp Dijon mustard

The Application
Mix the above ingredients together in a bowl with your hands till they have become combine. Then line a baking sheet with tin foil and free form the meat into a loaf shape, be sure not to make it too large or it shall not cook through in a decent time. Bake in a 375 d oven for 1 hour and 15 min, or until internal temp comes to 160 d Break out the probe thermometers for this one folks

    Man, that looks good. I love meatloaf - especially when it has a nice dark crust like this one. Suddenly, I'm sooooo hungry...
