Hearty meatloaf is such a warm & comforting meal. When done right, it is delicious! With the weather these days, what more can you want?! Our family's tradition is to have it with egg noodles on the side. Try this recipe tonight- it's so easy, so juicy & beef, what's for dinner! :)
- 2 TBSp olive oil
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 lb. ground beef (80/20)
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 c bread crumbs
- 3/4 c parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 TBSp balsamic vinegar
- 2 TBSp fresh basil, chopped
- S & P
In a small pan, heat the olive oil. Add & saute the onion until it is tranlucent. Remove from heat & allow to cool.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray or oil a loaf pan (I ove my glass Pyrex one).
Place all of the other ingredients in a bowl. Add the cooled onion & combine the ingredients. Form in a loaf~shape & place in pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes, until beautifully browned on top.
Serve with noodles & marinara.
