I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Another Best Meatloaf Recipe

The days are getting cooler now calling me to make this classic comfort food. Everyone has their most tender, tasty meatloaf recipe and sorry to those who can't stand creamed corn, but I love me some meatloaf served with creamed corn and mashed potatoes! 😋

2 lbs ground beef
1 onion, diced
1 small red bell pepper, diced
2 tbsps olive oil
4 tsps minced garlic
1 Italian tomato, diced
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tbsps fresh chopped basil
2 eggs
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tbsps parmesan cheese
black pepper to taste

1 tbsp Italian salad dressing
2 tbsps ketchup
1 tbsp brown sugar

Heat olive oil in a skillet and sauté the onion, red pepper, garlic and tomato 4-5 minutes then cool. For a quick cool, spread the veggies out on a plate and pop in the freezer for a few minutes.
Meanwhile mix ground beef with oregano, basil, eggs, tomato paste, worcestershire sauce, panko, parmesan and black pepper. Once the vegetables (in the freezer) are cooled mix them into the meat as well.

Form into a loaf and place on a parchment lined griddle or baking pan. Combine the glaze ingredients and spoon over the top. Baking the meatloaf in a griddle rather than loaf pan lets any grease run off instead of having the loaf soak in it.

Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes then reduce heat and continue cooking at 350°F for another 30-40 minutes.

Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

Stop to admire the glaze ...

Beautiful on it's mashed potato and creamed corn mountain!

Serves 6-8
