Now this is a Sunday dinner. I can’t remember the last time I made meat loaf. Seriously, I can’t. It’s been cold and messy here since Sunday and nothing sounded more warm and cozy than meat loaf.
The meat loaf is full of flavor and is in no way dry. Throughout the mini loaves are bites of cheese. Ooey, gooey, deliciousness. I ended up using a goats milk cheese but cheddar would be just as delicious. I also used gluten-free bread to make the breadcrumbs. The flavor comes from a mix of sauteed onion and garlic, horseradish, mustard, oregano and parsley. Using sirloin also adds a lot of flavor without a lot of added fat.
The mini loaves cook up a lot faster than one big loaf, so dinner came together pretty fast. On the side, a simple salad with a homemade balsamic dressing. Simply whisk together 2 tablespoons fig balsamic vinegar (totally worth the money), 2 tablespoons of EVOO, 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard and a pinch of salt.
What is your ultimate Sunday dinner?
(Oh, and I don’t have my “real” camera at the moment – don’t worry, I’m getting it back – so you’ll have to bear with Instagram pics until then.)
