Wendell's At It Again!

Ok, I am beginning to wonder if my blog is in danger of being taken over by my dear husband. He seems to be in a competition with me to do the cooking. Months of not having any desire to do anything seems to be changing! Mind you, I am not complaining because he has not taken an interest to doing much over the past few months.

Yesterday he decided he was going to make a meatloaf for supper and this is what he came up with. It turned out pretty good!

Wendell's Meat Loaf


2 - Eggs, beaten
3/4 cup - Milk
1 cup - Cracker Crumbs
1/2 cup - Onion, chopped
1/4 cup - Carrots, grated
1 tbsp - Parsley
1 tsp - Salt
1/2 tsp - Oregano, dried
1/8 tsp - Black Pepper
2 lbs - Lean Ground Beef
6 - Strips of Bacon

In a medium bowl, combine the eggs and milk; stir in the cracker crumbs, onion, carrots, parsley, salt, oregano and pepper. Add the ground meat; mix well. Lightl pat the mixture into an 8 x 4 x 4-inch loaf pan.

Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 1 to 1 1/4 hours or until the internal temperature registers about 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Cooked it about 45 minutes and then put the bacon strips across the top of it. Put it back into the oven until the bacon became brown and a little crispy. Spoon off the additional fat.

I served it with peas and cauliflower with a cream sauce. It turned out to be a wonderful meal. Maybe I can share this blog at least one day a week... *laughing*

I just wanted to add that the carrots were put into the meat loaf only because I had made the carrot cake earlier in the day and we didn't want to waste them. What better way to sneak in another veggie?

Take Care and Stay warm,
