Very good! My picky son made his into a toast sandwich and said "Mmm, it's really delicious!" which made my night! I used Parmesan cheese because I had it, added some garlic powder shakes to the mixture and formed the meat into a loaf shape on top of a broiler pan. It needed an hour in my oven. Thank you for posting my son's fave meatloaf!
I had a similar recipe to this but omitted the flour and added 1/4 cup chopped parsley and 1/4 cup chopped onion. Instead of pan frying I baked it in the oven at 450 for 10-12 min turning once then simmered it in the pasta sauce. Yummy, Thanks!
Hello Granny Ginger! Thank you, thank you, meatloaf my husband actually ENJOYED!! It is such a straightforward, easy recipe. Just terrific and I look forward to trying the Fricadellen, sounds just too delicious. I am so interested about adding the flour, I have never seen that before in ANY meatloaf recipe, what does it do? Thanks, buttrdish!
