Meat Loaf, Mashed Potatoes, Acorn Squash, Asparagus


Meat Loaf, Mashed Potatoes, Acorn Squash, Asparagus

Meat Loaf has got to be one of the great comfort foods. It's also a great way to feed a big family, and on a budget. You don't have to spend a ton of money to make a great meal! Plus, it's great as leftovers. Eat it as is, or consider putting it in a sandwich? Mmm meat loaf sandwich.

ingredients:

1 pound ground beef
1 cup bread crumbs
1 egg
1 carrot
2 celery stalks
1 onions
2-3 cloves garlic
worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup milk
salt
pepper
ketchup
brown sugar
white wine vinegar

acorn squash
potatoes
milk
salt
pepper
asparagus

directions:

1. In a frying pan, sautee chopped onion, sliced carrot, and sliced celery so that they are slightly cooked. Soak breadcrumbs in milk to ensure your meat loaf will be moist.
2. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, crushed garlic, a splash of worcestershire sauce, a squirt of ketchup, and the veggies from a pan. Mix with a fork or your hands and form into a big ball.

3. Put the big ball of meat into a casserole dish and form it into a loaf.

4. Mix ketchup, brown sugar, and white wine vinegar into a bowl to make a sauce for the top of the meat loaf. Brush or pour on top of the meat loaf.

5. Put the meat loaf in the oven at 400 F degrees for about 1 hour, or 1 hour and 15 minutes. Serve with mashed potatoes and your favourite vegetable.
