Yesterday was Sunday and Sundays scream "eat meatloaf".
Well it doesn't really.
Sundays generally don't scream anything...it's a pretty passive day.
If anything, it might whisper "go back to bed cause it's going to be a long week".
Yesterday was May 4th and May is not a month that you generally think of meatloaf. May is the month you start dreaming up really great bbq recipes. But, this "spring" thing is realy struggling to make an appearance.
So I figured I should make meatloaf on this cool Sunday...cause I hopefully won't be thinking meatloaf for a while.
Here's hoping, right?
Come on summer...you can do it!
700-1000 g meat (use any combination you like but my favourite is 1/3 beef, 1/3 pork and 1/3 veal)
1 small onion, finely chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp smoked paprika (or regular if you don't have this)
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 c bread crumbs (I used fresh breadcrumbs - 2 slices of bread pulsed in a food processor - this makes for a more moist loaf)
1 c grated cheese (I used asiago...you can use any stronger cheese...even cheddar)
1 tbsp honey
1 small can tomato paste
1 tbsp rosemary, crushed
1 pkg bacon
1/4 c ketchup
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tsp sriracha
Now, whip up some awesome mashed or scalloped potatoes and place one of these babies on top. Serve along side a great salad and you are all set.
Happy Sunday dinner!
