My MIL's Marvelous Meat Loaf

2 slices whole-wheat bread into 1/2 cup milk

When moist, add and mix well:
1 egg
1 or 2 shredded or coarsely chopped onions
1 minced clove garlic
1 and 1/2 pounds ground turkey (or, if you eat it, lean ground beef)
1 and 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1/4 teaspoon each basil and freshly ground pepper

I often add 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, a grated carrot, or 1/2 cup or so fresh or frozen peas

Mix thoroughly, preferably with fingertips; mold into a loaf in a shallow baking dish or pack into a greased loaf pan;
sprinkle with paprika, bake at 350 degrees about 1 hour, or until 180 degrees.


  1. You know you lost Corey at Step One, and me at the word "moist". Oh well, it's $20 burgers for us!

  2. Oooh - I like the "sprinkle with paprika" part. It always makes things look so pretty to have paprika sprinkled on them. I'm not even sure what paprika actually tastes like, but I love its color. But PEAS? You have got to be smoking something up there in Massachusetts.

  3. Dear Haters,
    When was the last time you posted on this blog?????? Just asking . . .

  4. TOUCHE. If you had sampled the crap I have been feeding my family lately, you would be HORRIFIED. It has certainly not been blog-worthy.

  5. Ouch. Okay, BRISTOL. I'll post tomorrow.

  6. Now Alicia, you know I won't get pop references. However, I am appalled that you might be referring to me as Palin's daughter. Ew. But why, is the question . . .

  7. Oh, just a wink at how she called anyone who said anything critical about her dancing, a "hater".
