So the perfect comfort food is always the best on a cold winter night, luckily for me that was not the case this weekend. In fact Saturday was so warm I sat at starbucks outside with just a light sweater on, and yes it’s January in Maryland. I know that was crazy, and yet people say global warming doesn’t exsist (but i disgress). Sunday turned out to also be a fairly warm day, but yet I was still in the mood for some comfort yumminess! What better way than some meatloaf, mashed potatoes and broccoli to round out the meal.
Thanks to pinterest I found an easy meatload recipe (yes I have made it before but was looking for something different). To be honest I only used the topping recipe (and because I don’t measure anything and only used what I had on hand it was a varitation). The actual recipe can be found on my pinterest page. Of course it was so yummy that I even forgot to tale a picture (oops).
So what did i do differently? Well I used the following to make my meatloaf (see the recipe for what they used):
- ground beef (lean from the Amish market)
- onion powder
- garlic powder
- basil (dried)
- oregano (dried)
- peccorino romano cheese
- dried bread crumbs
- a little water
I also didn’t have regular mustard so I used dijon. The meatloaf was enought that I had dinner for 2 additional nights!
