MeatLoaf Maddness!

So last sunday we had Joey and Angie over for dinner seeing we resheduled our ritual friday dinner and games night :) And i decided to make meatlloaf potato bake asparagas and fresh baked bread! My meatloaf turned out to be a MOUNTAIN! :) But i was feeding 3 grown men who love their meat so i wanted to make sure i had enough meatloaf to fill them up and have left overs for lunches! Heres what it looked like!

MeatLoaf Maddnesssss!
(i dont do measurements remember!)
(Your meatloaf will be made up of 80% turkey 20%beef)
Turkey Mince
Lean Beef Mince
1 Large Onion
6 Cloves of garlic
Fresh Ground Sea Salt(to taste)
Fresh Ground Black Pepper(to taste)
A1 Cracked Peppercorn Suace
Rosemary(to taste)
Panko Bread Crumbs
Ketchup
Unsalted Butter
Olive Oil
Eggs


Where to start?!
Take your mince toss it into a LARGE bowl for mixing!
Get your chopping board out and and diced our onion up,
Crush and peel the garlic then mince it up!
Heat your pan up with the oil and butter, when the butter has melted and gotten happy with the oil!
Toss your onions and garlic in! MMM
Now turn the heat down to meduim you dont want the onions to burn!
Sautee the onions n garlic till well cooked n mushie! Halfway to that point sprinkle the rosemary in!
(the mixture smells devine!)
Set aside when all cooked up and let cook you will be adding this mixture to the meat AND you want it to be cool enough that when your mixing your mince it dont burn u!

This is what it will look like when the mixture is cool enough to mix in with the meat! Once this mixture is mixed in added your eggs (depending on how much mince u used depends on how many eggs ull need in all my meatloaf had about 6-7pounds of mince all up so i added 2 eggs!) Mush your egs threw nicely add your bread crumbs mix threw well add your ketchup mix mix :) your goin to add the pepper and salt to the rw meat as well n mix throughly. Toss your mound of meat into a cassarole dish that is big enough to hold your meatloaf! Shape it then take your A1 sauce and spread over the meatloaf. Preheat your oven to 350'F and bake this baby for about 1-2 hours!


~Asparagas Done Easy~

Cuts the ends off your asparagus wash em u know how to pre em right? :)

Get a glass dish out drizzle it with olive oil

Toss your asparagus in and coat with the oil in the dish :)

Sprinkle some garlic powder over them and some onion powder

Crack some sea salt on em and some fresh cracked black pepper

Toss em about and throw in the oven cook until bright green and tender!
