Meatloaf Monday

by zydecopaws on December 14, 2009

Some people have meatless Monday, but we don’t adhere to that sort of thinking. In fact, today was meatloaf Monday, courtesy of Bubba Ho-Keg. A pound of ground beef was combined with a chub of Jimmy Dean hot sausage and mixed in with some fairly standard meatloaf additions: oatmeal, onions, peppers, mushrooms, and an egg. Spices were kept simple; salt, pepper, granulated garlic, and some thyme. In the grill basket it went, and a light brushing of barbecue sauce topped it off.

Veggies tonight consisted of some roasted carrots, Yukon potatoes, celery, and onion with a splash of EVOO, about a 1/4 cup of white wine, salt, pepper, and more thyme.

The veggies went on Bubba Ho-Keg first in a covered container. After about 30 minutes at 400°F the meatloaf joined the veggies, and about 90 minutes later dinner was served.

I don’t know what other people call comfort food, but between the weather (cold and rainy), the burst pipes over the weekend, and the normal Monday madness associated with working for a living, this meal really hit the spot and qualifies in my book.
