a homestyle classic that always delivers!!

Tonight, thanks to a dreary day, felt like a perfect night for some homey, comforting cooking in the kitchen. I decided to make a hearty meatloaf dinner full of everyday ingredients that everyone has in their pantries… salt, pepper, eggs, breadcrumbs, olive oil, water and of course good ground meats. My meatloaf is a three-type meat blend of ground sirloin, lamb and veal, which I always get from the local meat purveyor.
Everything was added to a large bowl and gently combined… once thoroughly mixed, it was time for a long bake in the oven until cooked.
As a side dish, I normally would whip up [literally] some mashed potatoes. I wasn’t feeling that, but instead craved broccoli rabe sautéed in lots and lots of garlic and oil! So that craving became a reality on the plate…
The meatloaf was moist and flavorful, while its counterpart slightly spicy, but plenty garlicky!
I am so glad that there was enough so that tomorrow there is some for a meatloaf sandwich…

at a low simmer…
