Can you stand another meatloaf recipe? I saw this being made on a tv show -- but was vacuuming and didn't catch all the ingredients. So, I adapted my own (rather, my mother's) recipe and came up with this. My husband will not eat meatloaf any other way!
- 1 lb ground chuck
- 1⁄2 lb ground pork
- 1⁄2 lb ground turkey
- 1 envelope lipton's onion soup
- 1⁄2 cup very hot water
- 3⁄4 cup oatmeal
- 1 egg, beaten
- 4 tablespoons steak sauce (I use A1)
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1⁄4 teaspoon crushed thyme
- 1⁄2 teaspoon crushed basil
- 1 tablespoon flat leaf parsley, chopped (reserve 1 tsp for top of loaf)
- 1 bag of ready to eat baby spinach leaves
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- Mix the meats, soup mix, water, oatmeal, egg, steak sauce and herbs together in a large bowl.
- Pat meat mixutre into a rectangle.
- The meat should be about 1/2 inch thick.
- Lay the baby spinach leaves over the meat, overlapping them to form a solid layer.
- Sprinkle all but 1/2 cup of cheese over the spinach.
- Carefully roll the meat up.
- This can be a little tricky, but once the first roll is made, it gets easier.
- Once rolled, pinch the ends to seal and place on a cooking sheet.
- Sprinkle remaining cheese and reserved parsley on top.
- Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes.
- Let rest for five minutes before slicing.
This was by far the best meatloaf I've ever had, much less made with my own two hands :-) The only thing you may take into consideration is that if you have a sensitive stomach, you may want to cut out the herbs/spices... they come on a little strong. But still SO DELICIOUS!!! Update: I have made this several times and have eliminated the thyme, basil, and parsley, and have also made it without cheese since DD and I are lactose intolerant and it is a stellar 5 star recipe :)
