M is for “Meatloaf”
The food, not the musician. (Although I will cop to having liked Meatloaf in the 80’s…it was the 80’s what can I say…)
1/2 lb ground pork
1/2 lb ground veal
1/2 lb ground beef
mush together with hands
add one or two eggs, some finely chopped onion, as much garlic as you want (but don’t go overboard, you want to taste meatloaf, not garlic) and a healthy dose of ketchup. mush some more. note: do not over mush, then you just get a wierd texture.
put in loaf pan and place uncooked bacon strips over the top.
bake at 350 degrees for one hour
while it’s cooking make mashed potatoes and try not to drink entire bottle of wine. failing that, enjoy the wine and try not to kill yourself making the mashed potatoes while inebriated.
