Meatloaf Again?


Recommended Posts

A far simpler cook was put on tonight. A family classic which always seems to please just about any pallet.

Savory Meatloaf with a sweet topping sauce.

Two loafs were made tonight on the K7. Due to all the big flavors, four Mesquite chunks were added to the charcoal to enhance the smoky flavor.


3 pounds of 80/20 hamburger.

2 Cups of Panko.

1.5 Medium onions finely diced.

1 red bell pepper diced.

1 yellow bell pepper diced.

1 green bell pepper diced.

2 tablespoons Worchester sauce.

12 ounces tomato paste.

4 large eggs.

3 teaspoons kosher salt.

2 lobes of a garlic clove minced.

6 additional ounces of tomato paste mixed with 1/4 cup of brown sugar (the topping)

8 ounces sweet baby ray's bbq sauce.

2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper.

Cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F in the center.

Served with Whipped potatoes


5 pounds russet potatoes.

1/2 stick butter.

3 ounces cream cheese.

2 ounces sour cream.

4 ounces heavy cream.

2 teaspoons of kosher salt.

1/2 teaspoon of fresh cracked black pepper.

Potatoes topped with Southern style cream gravy.


4 Tablespoons of turkey fat dripping, which were frozen on Thanksgiving.

4 Tablespoons of flour (combined under medium heat with drippings to make roux.

6 ounces heavy whipping cream.

10 ounces chicken stock.

2 teaspoons salt.

1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper.

2 cups of freshly diced Cornish game hen meat, both white and dark.

And store bought King's Hawaiian rolls to balance out the savory with a bit of sweet!

Yes Bosco, Most of the second loaf has been tossed into the fridge to make meatloaf sandwiches for lunch the next day.

It was surprising the family powered through one loaf, and ate a third of the second loaf. I had only expected one loaf to be consumed.

A lot of gravy was made, with the plan of cooking some veggies, tossing them into the gravy, and making pot pies the next day. But all of the whipped potatoes were consumed, along with most of the gravy. The use of heavy cream added a lot of richness to the potatoes and gravy, which elevates them a notch. As the cook, it is always gratifying to see a large amount of food enjoyed in a single sitting.
