Good Ol' Meatloaf

Urgent message from a friend: Do you have a recipe for meatloaf? Why yes, of course!
3 slices of hardy but dry white bread, crusts removed
1 cup milk
1 egg
1/2 onion, chopped
1 tsp fresh thyme or 1/2 tsp dried
1 tbsp apple cidre vinegar
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 pound pork sausages, casings removed
2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped (if you have it)
1 tsp salt
several grinds of pepper
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp brown mustard
A fat pinch of ground coriander
Break the bread into pieces in a large bowl.

In a blender or food processor, combine the milk, egg, onion, thyme and vinegar. Pour over the bread and mix well, leaving it sit a few minutes for the bread to soak up the milk.

Add the meat, dill, salt and pepper, mixing thoroughly. Pat the mixture into a bread loaf pan.

Stir together the tomato paste, honey, mustard and coriander. Spread on top of the meatloaf. Bake at 350°F for one hour. For a browned crust, turn on the broiler toward the end of cooking.

I was just re-reading A Prairie Feast on the week-end,
love your writing style so much!! And I cook out of your cookbook often - easily
told by the pages that are stuck together and dog-eared.

Definitely will try this meat loaf and I am buying your new book today.

Keep at it Amy Jo!

Thanks Kim!! I'm so glad you enjoyed my book. Especially that the pages are sticking together. :) Let me know what you think of Out of Old Saskatchewan Kitchens. It's a bit more old fashioned, but then, I love history and I love cooking...
