- 1 lb of Rancho San Julian Ground Beef
- 6 saltine crackers or 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (optional)
- 2 eggs lightly beaten
- 2 green chopped onions
- ½ cup of milk
- ½ cup of parsley
- ¼ cup of mint or cilantro
- ¼ finely chopped celery
- Splash of soy sauce
- 2 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
- Pinch of pepper, salt, garlic pepper
For mashed potatoes
- 1–2 lbs potatoes scrubbed and peeled (if desired, otherwise leave the peels)
- 1/4 cup cream
- 1/2 stick of butter (or more!), at room temperature
- Salt & pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Combine all ingredients and mix. Add milk if meat loaf is too thick.
- Put mix in 8×4 baking dish then invert into shallow pan and cover with ketchup, if desired.
- Cover meat with foil and bake for 1 hour.
- While the meatloaf is baking, put the potatoes in a pot of cold, salted water, and bring to a boil. If the potatoes are large, cut them in half before doing this. Reduce heat to medium and cook at a simmer until completely tender. Drain, and allow to steam in the colander for a few minutes. Then return to the pot, and smash together with the salt, pepper, cream, and butter. Keep warm until the meatloaf is ready.
- Not Included in Large Kitchen Boxes: Saltine Crackers or Breadcrumbs, Milk, Soy Sauce, Worchestershire Sauce, Pepper, Salt, Butter (included in 3-5 boxes)
- For a tangy fresh tomato glaze, puree 2 cups chopped tomatoes, 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, 1 TBS apple cider vinegar, 1/2 tsp salt, and a pinch of cayenne in a blender. Cook the puree on low heat on the stovetop for the first 30 minutes your meatloaf is cooking. After 30 minutes, uncover the meatloaf, glaze with the sauce, and continue baking uncovered for the remaining 30 minutes.
- Make it your own: Have extra garlic? Simmer 6-8 cloves, unpeeled, with the potatoes in the water. Before draining, remove the garlic to a plate with a slotted spoon. Smush it with the back of the slotted spoon to pop the mellowed garlic right out of the skin. Mash the garlic together with the potatoes and other ingredients above, for a garlic mash!
