Home-style meatloaf is a delectable recipe that is great for dinner. Serve it with potatoes, salads or mixed vegetables. You can also prepare it ahead of time and just reheat it in the oven. Leftovers can also be eaten with eggs for breakfast.
6 bacon strips
500g ground beef
500g ground pork
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 medium sized carrot, chopped
2 medium sized brown onions, chopped
4 slices loaf bread, edges trimmed and flaked
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 tablespoon horseradish
3 tablespoons ketchup, preferably sweet
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
For the gravy:
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup beef broth
1/4 cup red wine
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Salt and ground pepper to taste
Preheat the oven at 400F and lightly grease a loaf pan with oil. Line it with bacon strips.
Place the ground pork, ground beef, chicken soup, carrots, onions, eggs, flaked bread, Dijon mustard, horseradish, ketchup, seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, finely chopped parsley, Italian seasoning, pickle relish and Parmesan cheese in a large mixing bowl. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
Transfer the meatloaf mix into the loaf pan and pack it well. Cover it with aluminum foil and bake it in the preheated oven for 1- 1 1/2 hours or until it is cooked. Remove from oven and let it stand for 15 minutes. Gently remove the meatloaf from the loaf pan and set it on a chopping board. Slice it into half inch pieces.
Pour the meatloaf drippings into a small sauce pan over medium heat. Add the flour to the drippings and whisk until there are no more lumps. Slowly add the beef broth, wine and liquid seasoning. Cook it for 4-6 minutes or until the sauce is thick. Season it with salt and pepper as desired.
Put the meatloaf on a serving plate or individual plates and serve warm with gravy.
