. monday night dinner .



I got to make dinner tonight and since we had some ground beef to use, I decided meatloaf sounded great!

I found a recipe online with good reviews and went for it (I’d never made meatloaf before….new experience!)

It turned out pretty good, so here’s the recipe:

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds extra-lean ground beef
  • 3 slices bread, toasted and crumbled
  • 7 buttery round crackers, crushed
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce, divided
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the onion and garlic 5 minutes, until onion is tender. Remove from heat, and season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the onion and garlic, beef, crumbled bread, crushed crackers, egg, sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, and 1/2 can tomato sauce. Gradually stir in the milk 1 teaspoon at a time until mixture is moist, but not soggy. Transfer the mixture to a 5x9 inch loaf pan.
  4. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven 40 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F, and continue baking 15 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl, mix the remaining tomato sauce and ketchup. Pour over the top of the meatloaf, and continue baking 10 minutes.
