We aren't exactly sure who in his family started calling it that, but it has stuck and now our family enjoys "goat loaf" too! I love to add veggies to my meat loaf, especially onions and shredded zuchinni! I never have been a huge fan of adding lots of bread crumbs to it . . . I guess it just depends on what I have and the mood that I am in . . . so my recipe for meatloaf is ever changing but always a welcome sight at our dinner table!
Mini Meat Loaf's
Recipe by: Emily
2 lbs Extra Lean Ground Beef or Turkey
1 Medium Onion, diced (you can use fried onions too)
1/2 cup Zucchini, shredded
1/4 cup Evaporated milk
1/3 cup Bread crumbs or Quick Oats (you can add more if you prefer!)
1 tsp Poultry Seasoning
1 1/2 tsp Seasoning Salt or Steak Seasoning (according to mood, or taste)
Freshly Cracked Pepper
Combine all ingredients and shape into a loaf and place in a loaf pan or make mini meat loafs in mini loaf pans or a muffin tin. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50 -60 minutes for a large meatloaf and 30-35 minutes for mini meatloaf's. Glaze with ketchup or Mom's Meatloaf Glaze and broil until glaze or ketchup begins to caramelize and bubble.
For the Glaze I do it the way my mom did, starting with 1/2 cup of Ketchup and 1 Tbsp brown sugar, if you want a sweeter glaze add more brown sugar according to taste.
Oven Roasted Corn
4 Ears of corn, husks on, corn silk removed
Wrap the cleaned ears of corn with the husks still on in Aluminum foil. Place in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven and butter cobs, then sprinkle with salt and freshly cracked black pepper, enjoy!
Mini meatloafs freeze very well!
