Simple Sunday Supper

Today has been a simple day. Church, lunch and an afternoon with family watching movies and reading books. It has been a nice day just the three of us.

It seemed only right for us to have a simple, traditional meal. Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and broccoli.

Ingredients

2 lbs. of ground beef (chuck or round)

1 medium onion, diced

2-3 tbs parsley, chopped (Italian parsley, don’t mess with the curled stuff—it’s bitter)

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

1 to 1 ½ cups oats

1 bell pepper, diced (optional)

1 egg

1 small can tomato sauce

Salt and pepper

Oats ... that's what I use instead of bread.

Dump all the ingredients in and give it a stir.

Tomato sauce and a stir.

Then add the tomato sauce and egg.

One fresh egg.

I always put my meatloaf in a cast iron skillet. You can use a loaf pan or Pyrex dish.

Everyone should have a well-seasoned iron skillet.

Cast iron is an awesome conductor of heat.

Press the meat into the pan. Next make the topper (this is optional).

A sweet ketchup-based sauce does the trick.

Topping

½ c. ketchup

1 tbs mustard

¼ c. brown sugar

2 tbs. whole grain mustard

Salt and pepper

Top with the sauce.

Pour on top, spread out to the edges. Then place the pan in a 375 degree oven. Bake for 45 min or until done all the way through.

Baked to perfection.

Yummy! Sunday supper.
