Ellie Krieger's (again??) New Classic Meatlof
I know. I have been cooking from this book very often and quite obsessively but I think this post will be the last one from this book at least for a little while.
This time, I made meatloaf from her book. This meatloaf if a healthier version of regular meatloaf and it has lots of veggies and some oats.
Click here for her recipe.
It was good but was not great. I think the reason why I didn't love it was because I used 98% fat free ground beef. The recipe called for 90% and higher and I chose to use 98% fat free to be extra healthy.
However, I think this decision backfired me. Since there was not much fat in it, it came out little dry.
It tasted really good and I love the fact that it had lots of vegetables in it so if I used 90% fat free meat, it should have been juicier and better.
The sauce was quite rich and yummy.
Even though I didn't love this meatloaf, my son loved it and he ate at lot of them. He ate it with pasta and also with rice.
This is a great way for kids to eat vegetable without even knowing.
For the side, I made roasted potatoes. Just simple potatoes with salt, pepper and olive oil.
I don't make meatloaf too often but next time I make it, I will use meat with more fat. That was the lesson I learned.
Anyways, I am running out of food pictures to post. My camera is in repair right now. It has been more than two weeks but has not been fixed yet.
These photos are from few weeks ago and I have been cooking some fantastic stuff since then but I don't have a camera to capture those fantastic food :-)
I hope we will get our camera back soon because we are having Halloween party with all my mom friends and also also I am going to take my son for trick or treat on the day of halloween.
I need my CAMERA!!!
The book I used for this meatloaf is this.
