One of the best and easiest ways to get comfortable is to eat comfort food. Today, we are fixing an easy breezy comfort meatloaf. To finish off the meatloaf I recommend serving mash potatoes, roasted carrots, and cucumber salad.
Ingredients:1 tablespoon vegetable oil, 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, 1 large white onion, chopped, 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, 2 teaspoon chicken tomato flavored bouillon, 1 1/4 tablespoon tomato paste, 1 teaspoon black pepper, 3 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 3 minced garlic cloves, 1/3 cup chicken broth, ketchup, 1 1/2 pound ground Angus beef, 1 pound ground chicken, 3/4 cup oatmeal, 2 large eggs, lightly beaten. Reserve 1/2 cup ketchup and 2 tablespoons brown sugar, mix to pour on top of meatloaf when you bake it.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, mix lightly, with your hands. The need to be thoroughly mixed, but make sure you don’t pack the meat tightly together. Dump into a loaf pan and shape. Evenly spread the ketchup mixture on top. Underneath the meatloaf pan place a pan of water. The water will ensure that the top of the meatloaf will not crack. I do this because I want a beautiful meatloaf that is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes. Approximately 20 minutes before the loaf is done pour off pour off the grease. Slice and serve hot.
