Sometimes the only thing that warms the soul on a cold, stormy evening is comfort food and family. This parmesan meatloaf is just the answer. It’s easy to make and is even more flavorful the next day, making it the perfect meatloaf sandwich.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Start by crumbling 1 cup of soda crackers or oyster crackers.
After seventeen years of a broken relationship with food processors, I finally appreciate them oh so much. After finished, place cracker crumbs in a large bowl.
Add one package of your favorite dry packaged au jus mix to 3/4 cup milk. Add to bowl with crackers.
Then add 1 cup of grated parmesan, 1 tablespoon of minced garlic, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce and 3 eggs to mixture.
Finally add 2 1/2 pounds of ground beef (or ground chicken or turkey) and then salt & pepper. Combine ingredients well.
Other things you could add to your parmesan meatloaf include chopped celery, chopped green peppers, sliced water chestnuts (which will add crunch) or some canned fried onions.
Place meatloaf makin’s in a pretty baking dish. Bake for about an hour or until center of meatloaf reaches 165 degrees.
To finish off, I used the juices of the baked meatloaf as a gravy start. Mmmm tasty!
This is a recipe that I promise you will be on your rotating dinner menu.
