Whit's Holiday Recipe #2

Take two: Greek Meatloaf...uncooked

Hello friends, if you missed the first installment of Whit's Holiday recipes go back about 3 posts. Today I am bringing you a twist on a timeless classic meatloaf. Now, I have to admit BH (before Hannam) I wasn't into meatloaf, but my man loves him some meatloaf. So throughout the years I have tried to mix mine up a bit. This is the current winner at our house. It's festive because it has red and green ingredients. So here goes:

Greek Meatloaf:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Ingredients: 1 lb of ground sirloin, small onion chopped, handful of feta cheese, handful of raw spinach: chopped, 1 small roma tomato, chopped, 1 tablespoon of minced garlic, couple of pinches of salt, 1 tsp. of parsley, 1 egg, 2/3 cup of bread crumbs, couple of shakes of worcestershire sauce and ketchup.

Ok, in a bowl put the sirloin in and make a well, add all ingredients minus bread and egg, mix together. Note you will get your hands dirty. Then make a well again and add the bread crumbs and egg, mix together again. Then I line a cookie sheet with foil, dump the meatloaf on the pan and form it into a rectangle shaped loaf. Then top with ketchup for an added yum.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to 1 hour and serve with homemade red-skin mashed potatoes. We love this hearty and warm meal, I hope you will too!

Please note...I actually created this recipe myself based on a sample I had last Christmas. As with any recipes you can add to it or delete any item you do not like. Enjoy!
