Of all the reassuring comfort food there is nothing better than a perfectly executed, divinely crusty- brown meatloaf. Served with a generous pitcher of rich gravy and mounds of creamy mashed potatoes it takes comfort food to dazzling new heights.
In cooking as in most things in life the simple dishes done well we appreciate, enjoy and remember. We are bombarded by magazines, newspapers, cooking shows and books touting” the latest shout” in food. Recipes that require endless shopping trips searching for exotic ingredients. We’re exhausted before we even begin to prepare the meal.
Serve this generous meatloaf proudly to family and friends. It is a treasure that garners raves and second helpings. The combination of ground meat and pork, and sauteing the vegetables gives this meat loaf its rich, depth of flavour. Don’t be tempted to skip the sauteing step.
This old favorite is even better the next day. Meatloaf cold makes great sandwiches.
