Meatloaf



This is the first time we bought meat from a butcher. And look at this organic ground beef we got. The color is very red not like the one you buy in regular grocery stores that are dark red in color. The cow is from our farmer friend whom we get our raw milk also. We got about 100 pounds part of a whole cow. I'm not really sure, maybe it was 1/4 of a cow. And I'm using this one for my meatloaf recipe.

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 cup milk
1 tsp chopped fresh sage leaves
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp pepper
3 slices bread
1 egg
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 cup ketchup
1 small onion, chopped (about 1/4 cup)
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce (you know what, this is one of the words I can not pronounce correctly :)


Heat oven to 350°F. Mix all ingredients except ketchup. Spread mixture in loaf pan, or shape into loaf in rectangular pan. Spoon ketchup over top. Bake 1 to 1 1/4 hours or until done.

This is what it looks like before cooking time. I squeezed the ketchup from the bottle instead of spooning it on top. Another DH favorite second to sweet and sour pork.
