The Best Old Fashioned Meatloaf Recipe You Will Eat

This old fashioned meatloaf recipe is one I have used forever, tweaked here and there but always came back to this original recipe. It was the recipe my grandparents used, and their parents used, so you know it’s good!


Garden herb spread

A wonderful spread for bagels or crackers, this is creamy and herby, perfect for that ferocious morning hunger when the scrambled eggs aren't quite ready yet.

Makes around 500g
60g raw cashews
1 garlic clove, chopped
450g firm tofu, drained
2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
2 tbsp fresh thyme
1 tbsp fresh tarragon
2 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
30g red onion, chopped
¼ tsp salt
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
Salt and black pepper

1 In a blender, blitz the cashews into coarse crumbs. Add the garlic and pulse to incorporate. Crumble in the tofu. Blend until relatively smooth. Add everything else and pulse. You don't want the onion and herbs to completely puree – they should be chopped into small bits.

2 You can serve immediately, but it's best when it has been chilled for at least 30 minutes.

Vegan Brunch: Homestyle Recipes Worth Waking Up For by Isa Chandra Moskowitz (Da Capo Lifelong Books)


Recipe Summary

  • 2 loaves sliced white sandwich bread (1 pound each), torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, plus more for baking dish and foil
  • 4 celery stalks, diced medium
  • 1 large onion, diced medium
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups (29 ounces) low-sodium chicken broth

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On two rimmed baking sheets, arrange bread in a single layer. Bake until dry but not browned, about 14 minutes, tossing bread and rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer to a large bowl. (To store, let cool completely and keep in a resealable plastic bag at room temperature, up to 1 week.)

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium. Add celery and onion season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables soften, about 8 minutes. Add sage and celery seed and cook 3 minutes more. Transfer to bowl with bread. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs and broth. Add to bread mixture and toss to combine.

Reserve 4 cups stuffing for turkey. Spoon remaining stuffing into a buttered 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Cover with buttered foil refrigerate until ready to bake. Bake at 350 degrees until warmed through, about 25 minutes.

Fried Sage Leaves

James Baigrie

Delicate, crunchy fried sage can be crushed and sprinkled on squash or bean soups, served as an accompaniment to burgers, and even eaten whole as a snack. Margo True paid homage to sage in “Power” (November 2001).

Ingredients

rustic white bread, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 10 cups)

unsalted butter, plus an additional 2 tablespoons melted

finely chopped fresh sage leaves

Leaves from 4 fresh thyme sprigs

low-sodium turkey, chicken, or vegetable broth

Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 225°F. Spread the bread cubes on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake until quite crisp, stirring every 30 minutes, about 90 minutes total. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients.

Lightly grease a 9x13-inch or 3-quart baking dish set aside. Melt the 4 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, celery, and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are very soft, about 10 minutes. Stir in the sage and thyme and cook for 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat. Place the broth, eggs, salt, and a generous quantity of fresh black pepper in a medium bowl and whisk to combine set aside.

Transfer the toasted bread cubes and onion mixture to a large bowl and fold to combine. Drizzle the egg mixture into the bowl and fold until evenly moistened. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons melted butter. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. (At this point, the dressing can be refrigerated overnight or up to 24 hours.)

When ready to bake, arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 375°F. Bake covered for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake until the top is lightly browned, about 15 minutes more. If you are baking the dressing directly from the refrigerator, expect to add 10 extra minutes baking time. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Recipe Notes

Make ahead: The assembled stuffing can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours before baking.

Storage: Leftovers can be refrigerated for up to 4 days.
