All American Dish...

2.28.2011

It's been awhile since I cooked and so therefor, I decided that with my mom being out of town, now would be a good opportunity to swoop in and make my dad eat some "hidden veggies" again! I know I just became a brit, and should have probably been making a shepards pie or something of that sort... but I decided to play it safe if I was going to expect my dad, the picky eater, to eat some of it.

I opted for the oh so traditional american meal of the deluxe meatloaf and garlic red mashed potatoes... funny thing is I don't think my mom has actually ever made this for us... oh well there's a first time for everything hu? All I know is that it looks like something my dad would eat, so I decided to try and make it!

I gathered all of my ingredients, tools, and got to work... ever pretend your hosting your own cooking show when you make fancy dishes... is it just me? I can't wit to in London and the hubs can make special guest appearances on my show =)
some worcestershire sauce for my in laws...






mix it all together...


tada... deluxe meatloaf!
So now I put almost finished deluxe meatloaf in the oven and let it do it's thing in there while I move onto the mash... The meatloaf is where the hidden veggies are... sorry I couldn't show all the pics for fear of my dad finding out and then refusing to eat the loaf... but they are in there, promise!

ever so patiently waiting for something to drop...



love me some garlic!


the finished masterpiece...

served with chilled riesling...
I had a lot of fun cooking this meal! It was definately a little more hands on than other recipies I've tried before but I liked the extra challenge... My meatloaf kind of fell apart as I tried to slice it... I think I needed to wait a little while after it came out of the oven before cutting it but we were so hungry we couldn't wait! Still tasted delishes and you know what, my dad even had extras =)

As always, if you have any questions or want any of the recipes, just comment me and I'll share! Have you ever tried to do a meatloaf? Any tricks you can add to help it keep its shape when slicing???? Let me know.
