Tips and How-To Instructions for Making Meatloaf

October 17, 2012

In America, meatloaf is considered a basic comfort meal that brings back exciting childhood family meal memories. There are very many ingredients that can be used for the meatloaf. If an item can be incorporated into a burger it is also good with the meatloaf. Using many ingredients will however take a longer time to cook but in the end it will still taste good. Below you will find instructions on making a great tasting meatloaf. You will need, a large bowl, chopped onions and garlic, eggs, rice, ground beef, pepper and salt.

I know that meatloaf sometimes gets a bad rap, mostly I would venture a guess that it's usually based on past experiences with a dry, tasteless glob of meat. On the other hand, I actually enjoy a good meatloaf myself and so does The Cajun, and I've discovered that using the slow cooker is a great way to get it on the table, when you've got a busy day….More at Deep South Dish: Slow Cooker Meatloaf

Turn on the oven and set it at 350 degrees F and put ground beef in a bowl. Crack an egg into the bowl, 1 per pound, add a tablespoon of onions and garlic, add half a cup of rice for 2 pounds of ground beef. Wash your hands and mix all the ingredients in the bowl. This should be done carefully to mix them up well. Wash your hands thoroughly when done. Put a cooling rack on a cooking sheet and spray it with cooking spray. Place the mixture on the cooling rack and shape wit with your hands to look like loaf. This should be less than 2.5 inches tall.

This meatloaf recipe is really delicious and never ever dry, due to the cooking method (it's bathed in broth!)….More at Nibbledish

Cooling rack is used to drain off excess grease from the meatloaf. Put this into the previously heated oven and wait for 20 minutes. When it is done remove it from the oven and sprinkle ½ a teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper on the meat loaf. You can also use ketchup if desired and place it back in the oven until the burger in the middle reaches 160 degrees. Remove it and place it somewhere to cool for about 10 minutes before eating.

You can experiment with as many ingredients as you wish if you think that it will end up tasting better.
