Normally people will bake, fry and even BBQ turkey this time of year. For many years I have done exactly that. Brining the turkey and cooking it slowly in the BBQ in a dish of water. But this year I decided to make some meatloaf.
We are not having anyone over this year and the meat I got is not the kind @activate.alpha likes so I'll be having this loaf to myself. Works out well that way using new sauces in the recipe. I'll probably give my mom a little and have the rest for the upcoming week.
Using some new ingredients including worcestershire sauce it gave the smell of the loaf quite strong. I also added an egg, garlic, and onion.
I made quite the mistake and tried to grind up some breadcrumbs. But not freezing it or toasting it did not grind up well.
I mixed my ground beef into a container holding the stuff mentioned above. I worked the meat into all of the ingredients.
The loaf was ready for the oven. I baked it at 350F for about 30 minutes, then added ketchup glaze to the top and turned up the heat to 400F. Then I came back in 15 minutes to check its temp. It was over 160F inside and ready to eat.
The glaze also had some worcestershire sauce mixed in as well.
The 15 minutes on high really gave the top glaze a nice coating to the loaf. I tried some and surely has a unique flavor. My first time cooking with worcestershire and I think I like it.
