Bare with me as I muddle through my first food blog entry. Tonight I made meatloaf and a my new version of a Loaded Baked Potato.
First the meatloaf.
You will need a cup of chopped onions, one carrot chopped fine, two cremini mushrooms chopped and two garlic gloves chopped. I forgot green onions chopped too.
Saute all these in a saute pan until all are soften and cooked through.
I use both hamburger and sausage in my meat loaf a pound of each.
Mix them both together but don’t over mix them otherwise your meatloaf will be tough.
After I mixed the meats together I added some havarti with dill cheese chunks to the meat mixture. Then I topped the meat with the cooked veggies after they cooled down.
Then I added one egg and about a cup of Panko crumbs. I know I just throw it in but if I had to guess it was a cup.
After you mix in the eggs and the bread crumbs throw it in a bread pan and put in in a preheated oven at 375 degree oven for around an hour. I always check it to make sure it is completely done in the middle before pulling out. Depends on your pan it might take longer.
On to my new version of Loaded Baked Potato.
So I cleaned two Russet potatoes. Sliced them but not all the way through.
Added butter in between each slice. Then top with sliced green onions. Cover and put in the oven with the meatloaf.
When they come out of the oven add cheese between the slices you made in the potato and then put bake in the oven until the cheese melts. Then I put sour cream and bacon and green onions on top. Delish.
Here is my finished dinner. Jon loved it but then again he was away and had to eat out every night this week. So he might be just craving home cook dinners anyway.
So thanks for bearing with me on my first blog. It will be a lot of fun. I can tell.
