Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. In a large bowl thoroughly combine the beef, pork, and veal.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, and then stir in the milk and oats.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the meat mixture and combine thoroughly.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients and combine again until fully incorporated.
  6. Form into a loaf in a roasting pan.
  7. Cover meatloaf with the slices of raw bacon and bake for 45 to 50 minutes.
  8. Remove to a platter and keep warm while making the mushroom gravy. (Note: Be sure to reserve 1/2 cup drippings for the gravy.).
  9. For the mushroom gravy: Pour the water into the meatloaf's roasting pan and stir and scrape with a wooden spoon or whisk to loosen the browned bits at the bottom.
  10. Pour the reserved meatloaf drippings into a 2-quart saucepan and warm over medium heat.
  11. Gradually stir in the flour until smooth. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is slightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes.

  13. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

I really liked this but our older systems had a hard time with the spices. I can't say I've made a better meatloaf though. The only real problem I had, was with the gravy. I guess my drippings burned a bit more than normal and I scraped alittle too much and ended up with a burnt flavored gravy. Other than that, great meatloaf! Thanks Mimi!!!
