Ma, Where's the Meatloaf?

Hopefully by now, you know that my writing is anything but serious.  Sure, I'm all about supplying killer recipes to help you out in the kitchen, but I'm just as interested in busting your balls and laying out a serious dose of humor to go along with all of your culinary woes.

It should come as no surprise that sometimes I just like to get down to the basics.  It's Sunday night, and I don't feel like sourcing hard to find, expensive ingredients to show off in photograph form on the internet.

Yeah, it's a bit bizarre that I'm writing an article/recipe on a meal that I just ate, but such is my life.  The only glamorous part is that I'm enjoying a decent glass of pinot noir while staring out at the Nashville skyline.

It's a rainy evening here.  In fact, this is the first Sunday that I've been home in over 3 months, so I felt like an old staple to bring about the comfort of home.

Meatloaf, you ask?

Probably not the most impressive meal to serve your lovely lady friend.  Then again, I've yet to meet a girl who liked meatloaf that I didn't like.  If she's down with comfort food, keep her around.  There's plenty of Starbucks drinking, vegetarian type, foodie chicks out there . . . so you are doing well if you can find a good ole' girl who appreciates the simple things.  Wow... that sounded Southern.  Good to be home.

Here it is.  Simple, easy, and tasty.  Special thanks to Mamma for this one.


1 lb 80/20 Ground Chuck
1 Small Onion, grated
1 Slice White Bread, soaked in water
1 Egg, cracked
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Pepper
1 Can Tomato Sauce

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Combine the first six ingredients into a large mixing bowl.  Carefully mix together ingredients until well combined and incorporated, careful not to overmix as the mixture will become tough.  Shape into a mold and place on a baking sheet.  Bake 45 minutes, remove from oven, and drain fat.  Pour sauce over entire loaf, and return to oven at 425 degrees F for another 15 minutes.  Remove, slice, and serve.
