Cheat Meat Loaf . . .

easy peasy my friends

the idea is from


Exquisitely Unremarkable

and it sounded like a new twist to meat loaf

so I gave it a try

here it is ready to go into the oven


9x13 size glass or stone ware dish

everything will be fixed in this dish

so in goes your ground round, ground beef, or chuck

with some finely chopped onion

add seasonings of choice

I added some rosemary, oregano, lots of pepper, a little salt

take an egg, whisk it up a bit

and then mix the seasonings, egg into the meat

right in the dish, no crackers, milk, bread, ketchup

cut up some potatoes and onions, place them around the loaf

there you go

dinner in a dish


I must say

I have made my mother's meat loaf recipe for years

excellent and tasty

but it always fell apart

this works, I tell you

cuts up perfectly, doesn't fall apart

we topped it with our own homemade chili relish

mister irish garden house gave it a huge thumbs up

I just love it when I try out something new

and it tastes great too


Thanks Kim

Loved It

Good morning, Lynne! looks yummy. The chili relish sounds great too. Thanks for sharing, I give you my thumbs up too. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

This looks great but what I really love is that it is done in the same pan so the potatoes and all roast at the same time. Brilliant!

I too have so many different recipes for meat loaf and they also fall apart, I'm all for one pot recipes, so I'll this one a try. Thanks Lynne.

I'm glad you tried Kim's recipe and liked it. I've been making my meatloaf the same way (since we gave up gluten over a year ago) and I'm amazed at how much I don't miss the bread or cracker crumbs. I like how she adds potatoes to the dish, as you did. Easy. xo

I saw that on Kim's blog too and filed it away. I really have to try it! I can imagine that I'm surrounded by the yummy aroma of that meat loaf!

We love meatloaf here so I will try this recipe. I think the egg is one of the keys to keeping it from falling apart. it looks delicious!

HI Lynne!
Hope you are well....
This is interesting...I use dry onion soup mix in my meatloaf...
Did you find it greasy?
