Well, hello there! I’ve been awfully quiet around here. I’m in such a work-mode that it’s hard for me to tear myself away for anything else. But I’ve got to eat, don’t I? So I figured I might as well make us a cute little meatloaf. I love this meatloaf, but usually only make it when I have to cook for more people than just us and make it twice as big. But today it occured to me that I could just cut my recipe in half and make a meatloaf for two.
I’ve also decided to replace my “last week’s dinner posts” with more loosely named “food” posts. The recipes to our weekday dinners aren’t always worth sharing because they are so simple, when meanwhile, chances are I’ve made a worthy recipe during the weekend or have some jummy muffins to share. So I thought I’d just share whatever great recipe I come across, whether I made it during the week or not.
Back to the meatloaf: normally I’d add chopped parsley to the meatloaf, which I highly recommend, but I didn’t have any and that’s why there are no beautiful green specks in there. It’s such an easy and quick recipe, you should definitely try it!
meatloaf for two:
Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F). In a bowl, combine 500 grams ground beef with 1 egg, 30 grams breadcrumbs, 1 grated or finely chopped onion, a handful of chopped parsley, 2 tablespoons mustard, 3/4 teaspoon salt and lots of freshly grated black pepper. Form into a bread-like shape and put into a small oven dish. Cover the top and sides with bacon, making sure to overlap the sides. Put in the oven for about 40 minutes until the meat is cooked through and the bacon is nice and crispy.
