I haven’t made a meatloaf in a good long while for some completely unfathomable reason. Perhaps that’s why everyone thought this really easy meatloaf I kind of just threw together was so awesome. Everyone gobbled it up. Either that or we were all just really really hungry.
- 1.25 lb package meat loaf mix (pork/veal/beef)
- 1.5 cups cooked rice (leftover from last week)
- 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning blend
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 1 Egg
Smush (yes, that is a technical term) all the above ingredients together and press into an 8×8 baking pan. Squirt (another highly technical cooking term) some (gourmet!) ketchup on top. Bake at 375° for one hour. Serve with mashed potatoes, caramelized onions, and a big green salad. Bask in accolades.
PS–> I just remembered that I posted another meatloaf recipe back in October of 2009. That’s probably the last time I made meatloaf! I wonder why I waited so long. Hrm. Anyway, I opted not to put in a bunch of veggies this time, but right now I can’t recall why.
