When cooking for ourselves alone, we tend not to indulge in the comfort food of family-sized meals such as meatloaf. We're intimidated with thoughts of leftovers or of breaking down recipes for a single portion. This recipe will give you one dinner and perhaps a sandwich or enough to share with a friend.
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 4 tablespoons tomato catsup
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 slice bread, crumbled
- 1⁄2 lb ground beef or 1⁄2 lb turkey or 1⁄2 lb veal
- Heat oven to 450 degrees.
- In a small bowl beat the egg, milk, 1 Tbsp.
- catsup, worcestershire, mustard, garlic powder, salt/pepper with a fork.
- Mix well, beat in the bread; then add the meat.
- Mix thoroughly to a pasty texture.
- Use small aluminum foil baking tin (these can be found in the supermarket; they're disposal after use) and form loaf.
- Spread remaining catsup over the top and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
I made this this morning and had a couple of slices for lunch. I used ground chicken, lovely moist yet firm loaf.Just right flavour Thanks for posting this handy recipe Gingerbee. — Mar 24, 2002, 2 ADDED COMMENTS: I made this again and used very fine minced white meat turkey, I beat if well so the texture was almost smooth - It came out just the way I wanted - just like a Bavarian Meatloaf again thanks - hope you like the pictures (Oh I doubled the recipe)
I made this for supper and it was perfect for just me. It's different from my usual meatloaf recipe but I really liked it. I'll make it again!
Was a little leery after reading one review wherein the reviewer didn't like the texture, but went ahead and made it anyway. Loved it! After I make it two or three more times I'll experiment a bit, pretty sure I'll add some onions. Btw, thought the texture was great.
