Meat Loaf and Creamed Peas Recipe

 I am not sure if I mentioned this in the past, but my motto for meet loaf has always been "Never made the same way twice". Unfortunately this has led to bad meat loaf. This latest meat loaf creation came about by following a recipe from my grandmother's vintage Betty Crocker cookbook. I have to say it turned out rather tasty and I thought I would share it with all of you. It is a solid meatloaf recipe.

So for the meatloaf recipe calls for:

1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
2 cups of bread crumbs
1 beaten egg
1 1/2 cups milk
4 tablespoons minced onion
2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/8 teaspoon sage

Mix everything thoroughly and put in a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan. If you want ketchup on top, add 3 tablespoon of ketchup on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until done. You can serve this hot .... or cold.  I have never had it cold, but the recipe says you can eat it cold. I guess it would be best cold on sandwiches.

I was also contemplating about the bread crumbs. It did not specify if it was dried or fresh. I used dried bread crumbs.

As you can see from the picture, I have served this with mashed potatoes and creamed peas. I made the creamed peas using canned peas. I made the peas by melting 1 tablespoon of butter with a tablespoon of flour and whisking the juice from the can of peas. Once the sauce is thicken add in the peas. Season to taste.  I also had caramelized onion cheese from Trader Joes and I topped off my potatoes and meat loaf. 

I will likely go to this recipe for now on to make meatloaf.
