Laddie's Bunkhouse Meatloaf

Laddie's Bunkhouse Meatloaf

While visiting my older brother and his wife, Laddie, she made us her "famous"  meatloaf.  She kindly toted all of the ingredients down to the bunkhouse where their TV is located so we could all watch Sunday football playoffs and the first episode of Downton Abbey together.

Laddie says,  " I had, before cattle, also made it with ground turkey. I have used it for picnics and boating parties, serving it chilled or room temp with assorted mustards. Add some cornichons and it is almost a pate! I recall that when it is chilled it does slice well. This is especially "eye catching" when made with the hard boiled eggs down the center! I am glad that you enjoyed it! "

Laddie's Bunkhouse Meatloaf
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 onion chopped
1 slightly beaten egg
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp
Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard
Several "grinds" of pepper
1 1/2 cups of soft bread crumbs
2-3 hard boiled eggs (optional)
4 tbsp catsup
2 tbsp molasses 


In mixing bowl combine milk, lightly beaten egg, Worcestershire sauce, seasonings, and bread crumbs.  Let stand for about 5 minutes.
Stir in ground beef, chopped mushrooms, and onions; mix lightly but thoroughly.
Peel hard boiled eggs. Shape meat mixture into loaf while placing eggs in center.  Place in 13 X 9 X 2-inch baking dish.
Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) for 1 hour.
Combine catsup and molasses;

brush on meat loaf after 1 hour and return to the oven (for approx. 10 minutes).  Makes a tasty glaze.
Slice across the loaf revealing a cross section of egg and place on plate. Garnish with parsley.
Serve with cross-cut potatoes.
For our meal, Laddie also chose a beautiful Romanesco from their LMR gardens which she roasted while the meatloaf and potatoes baked.

Thanks, Laddie, for sharing your recipe!
