MidWest Meatloaf Monday

Price per serving for two: $3.27

What's so brainy about meatloaf? Firstly, its deliciously simple. Secondly, it does not have to be complicated, in that you only need good seasoning and the third secret... never use ground beef. Though, ground veal can be used instead of the pork.
You will need to buy  1 pound of ground turkey. I buy ground turkey for 3.69 per pound.  I had half a pound of ground pork 1.50 and just under a half of mild breakfast sausage @1.35 worth.  I mix these ground meats with one egg and 3/4 cup of plain bread crumbs and seasonings to taste. I always say when you can smell the herbs after they have been blended in, its a good mix.

Take from the pantry list:
Plain bread crumbs
Sea Salt
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Black Pepper
Red Pepper Flakes
Dried Herb seasonings
*rosemary, mint and oregano

Heat your oven to F375. Once hot, take your meat mixture and form into a football. Place in an glass dish with olive oil drizzles on the bottom. Place in the oven, cook for about 35  min. or until the juices run dark pink/tan. 

Prepare Potatoes, you can boil, or microwave. Once tender, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle dried herb seasoning and Parmesan.

As a side, you can add squash or some light greens with fruit.
