BB: *@$ Meatloaf

In this case, *@$ doesn't mean something bad.

Me: What did you think of the meatloaf?

Daughter: It was 'effing' delicious.


That is mighty high praise, indeed. I have a long-time meatloaf recipe that beats out every other recipe I try. Except this one.

I was told, however, to continue to make 'my' meatloaf; that this one was a pretty close second.

Our first Barefoot Blogger recipe for March was Ina's Individual Meat Loaves. Clearly a winner. You can thank Tonya of What's On My Plate for this delectable choice.

The main difference, from what I can tell, is that the onions are sauteed before being mixed into the meat mixture and you make individual loaves instead of one big one. Even though it appears to be just another ordinary meatloaf, the flavor profile must be affected by the combination of seasonings.

I'm thinking of trying this again, only baking it in an 8x8 pan as I normally do. It might help with portion control. I halved this recipe, but I'm embarrassed to say that the two of us consumed every bit at one sitting.

Head on over to Tonya's blog for the recipe and to the BB blog to see who else baked this week.

I almost didn't make this one because I'm not a meatloaf fan, but it was terrific. We;re having it for dinner again tonight & I Can't wait. Yours looks terrific.

This was a surprise hit at my house too!

I think the chicken stock really made a difference, too. I've never used that before in a meatloaf - another layer of flavor.

Glad your family enjoyed the meat loaves!

I like the two ways you made it, particularly the sweet one.

Also love this recipe. Guys here could eat meatloaf and chili as many days as I want to serve them, I think. Yours looks great.
