One of America’s Favorites – Meatloaf

American meatloaf with tomato ketchup

Meatloaf is a dish of ground meat that has been combined with other ingredients and formed into the shape of a loaf, then baked or smoked. The final shape is either hand-formed on a baking tray, or pan-formed by cooking it in a loaf pan. It is usually made with ground beef, although ground lamb, pork, veal, venison, poultry, and seafood are also used, sometimes in combination. Vegetarian adaptations of meatloaf may use imitation meat or pulses.

The cooked meatloaf can be sliced like a loaf of bread to make individual portions. It can easily become dry; therefore, various techniques exist to keep the dish moist, like mixing in bread crumbs and egg, covering it with sauce, wrapping it, or using moisture-enhancing ingredients in the mixture, such as filling it with fatty meats, rich cheeses, or vegetables.

Meatloaf of minced meat was mentioned in the Roman cookery collection Apicius as early as the 5th century. Meatloaf is a traditional German, Scandinavian and Belgian dish, and it is a cousin to the Dutch meatball.

American meatloaf has its origins in scrapple, a mixture of ground pork and cornmeal served by German-Americans in Pennsylvania since colonial times. Meatloaf in the contemporary American sense did not appear in cookbooks until the late 19th century.

A meatloaf topped with tomato sauce and sliced.

During the Great Depression, cooking meatloaf was a way for families to stretch the food budget by using an inexpensive type of meat and left-over ingredients. Along with spices, it was popular to add cereal grains, bread or saltine crackers to the meatloaf to add bulk and stretch the meat. This tradition of additions still lives on, but with new goals: primarily, producing a lower-fat dish with superior binding and consistency.

American-style meatloaf is typically eaten with a sauce or relish, often applied before cooking. Many recipes call for a pasta sauce or tomato sauce to be poured over the loaf, which forms a crust during baking. A simple brown or onion gravy or a can of cream of mushroom soup can substitute for tomato-based sauce, but the meatloaf is prepared in a similar manner. Barbecue sauce, tomato ketchup, or a mixture of ketchup and prepared mustard may also be used. This style of meatloaf may be topped with a “meatloaf sauce” consisting of ketchup and brown sugar. Another variety of meatloaf, in the same style, is prepared by “frosting” the loaf with mashed potatoes, drizzling a small amount of butter over the top, and then browning it in the oven.

American-style meatloaf is normally served warm, as part of a main course, but it can also be sliced as a cold cut (and then used in sandwiches). This dish can be considered a typical comfort food in the US, and so it is served in many diners and restaurants. In a 2007 poll by Good Housekeeping, meatloaf was the seventh-favorite dish of Americans.

Grilling Sausages…..

Grill low and slow; fast and hot will cause the juices in the sausage to boil, making the casing burst open, resulting in a burnt outside and a raw inside. Never cut the sausage open while grilling to see if it’s done. To determine whether it’s done, you can measure the internal temperature with a meat thermometer. Sausages should reach 155–165°F (68–74°C). Alternatively, boiling them before cooking in a pan or on a grill can ensure that they’re thoroughly cooked and remain moist

Today’s Menu: Penn Station Subs

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. 40 degrees and mostly cloudy out today a bit cooler out today. In fact we saw some light snow flurries later this afternoon! Took Mom over for Radiation Treatment, number 12 with 8 to go! She’s really done good, very proud of her! We both wanted something light and easy to prepare. So the Kitchen closed. And so with the Kitchen shutdown it’s Penn Station Dagwood and Reuben tonight!

 

Lazy this afternoon so I had to order out. We really enjoy Penn Station Subs, so Subs it is! I ordered a couple of Subs for us. Mom had the Reuben Footlong with Fresh Cut Fries and I had the Dagwood on Multi Grain Bun with Turkey, Salami, Ham, and American Cheese. We’ve made this a regular stop, these are so Delicious! The Fresh Cut Fries were good too! Great Job as always Penn Station! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Healthier Poultry…..

Use healthier fats. The best are unsaturated varieties like cold-pressed olive, rapeseed or sunflower oil. Then when cooking chicken or turkey, you can cut way back on fat and calories by simply removing the skin.

Should you roast the Turkey covered or uncovered…..

The Butterball folks recommend cooking the turkey uncovered in a roasting pan. … If you put foil on the breast, remove it about 30-45 minutes before the turkey is done to allow the breast to brown.

Roasting a turkey hints…..

Cook it at a lower heat – specifically 325 degrees F – for 50% more cooking time than your recipe calls for. You want a lower temperature so the turkey doesn’t burn on the outside before it’s cooked through on the inside. And for more flavor – The basics, like onion, garlic, thyme, rosemary and sage, help lend that traditional Thanksgiving flavor. Take your aromatics up a notch by adding halved lemons or oranges. The citrus will add a nice brightness and acidity to your turkey. Love that Turkey!
