Ken's Meatloaf - Easy, moist, delicious and versatile

Ken's Meatloaf - Easy, moist, delicious and versatile

Take a large mixing bowl. Break in an egg, add a splash of milk, a splash Worcestershire sauce, a splash of olive oil, a splash of tomato ketchup, a grind of pepper and a pinch of salt. Beat.

Now add some finely chopped onions, carrots, garlic and mushrooms. The secret of a tasty moist meatloaf is mushrooms. I use Portobello, but use your favorite. Now add some peas and some breadcrumbs. Then add some finely chopped fresh oregano, use leaves only, discard the stems. Mix well.

Add the ground meat. I use turkey. It's not as fatty as beef. But use whatever you like. If you use beef use a lean cut such as sirloin and drain the fat after cooking. I have a friend who makes this with ground venison.

Mix very well, turn out into a loaf pan that's been sprayed with vegetable oil, add the topping below and bake at 350F.

Tech Notes:
Topping. Mix tomato ketchup, Dijon mustard and a splash of maple syrup, then spread on top of the meatloaf before baking.
Cheese. Almost any dish will benefit from freshly shaved real imported Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Add a small amount to the mix for subtle flavor.
Versatile. This mixture can also be used for burgers and meatballs.
