Our family eats together on average 6 of 7 nights a week. Growing up dinner was a time that all of us kids sat down to eat with mom and dad and go over our days. What we were doing during the week or on the weekend, and an overall good time to discuss our family.
I received the Chef Tony Miracle Mealoaf Pan for review from Love Cooking Company and love it. While I decided not to stuff my meatloaf or add a side dish to it I did use the presser to press the meat together and to keep it from falling apart. I adore this pan and it’s earned a space on my baking shelf. This is saying a lot since many of my pots and pans are in storage.
With the pan came a really nice mini bound cookbook. This included making meatloafs with different types of ground meat and different ingredients. I don’t think my meatloafs are always the same as I make them with ingredient I have on hand, but I can tell you it’s one of my family’s favorite meals. Below is the boys favorite recipe.
Joie’s Easy Meatloaf
- 2lbs ground meat of choice
- 1 egg
- 1 chopped stalk of celery
- 1/4 cup chopped bell type pepper of choice
- 1 onion chopped
- 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup Catalina salad dressing
- Seasoning of choice. I included 1/4 teaspoon paprika, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder.
Mix all ingredients until blended in a mixing bowl. Form into a loaf and place in pan. Making sure that the meat lifting tray is in the pan, press loaf with the presser so that it’s packed well into the pan. Bake on 350 degrees for 2 hours uncovered.
Immediately after removing from oven lift the loaf from the pan and let it rest for 15 minutes on the cutting board before cutting into individual slices.
