Ingredients

1 medium onion - finely chopped
1 clove garlic, mashed and minced
1 medium carrot, chopped (fairly finely)
2 celery ribs, chopped (fairly finely)

Oil

1/2c plain bread crumbs
about a tsp italian herbs
a few shakes of lawry's seasoned salt
a few shakes of plain ol salt
a tsp ground pepper
ground red pepper to taste (I used several shakes)
tobasco to taste (I used several shakes)
about 2T worcestershire sauce
3 slices white bread soaked in water and squeezed out
2 eggs

2 lbs ground beef

ketchup


add a couple of splashes of oil to a frying pan and set to med high heat


add the veggie mix and turn the heat down to medium


saute the until onions are nice and brown, but not burnt!


set aside to cool


add next 11 ingredients (bread crumbs to eggs)to a big bowl and mix well.


mix it all smooth


add the veggies and mix


then add ground beef


mix it all up well and form it into a loaf on a parchment paper lined baking sheet


slather generously all over the top and sides with ketchup


toss in the oven for about an hour


I waited for the ketchup to lose the gooey look


While that is cooking make mashed potatoes


The key to mashed potatoes: while you're letting the just boiled tubers drain in a strainer, toss butter and milk in the empty pot they were boiled in, heat until the butter is melted, add the potatoes to the mixture, add whatever other flavorings (I use salt and pepper), over medium-low to low heat, mash it all together


The point is it needs to dry out


The longer you mash it over the heat the better


Not browned though


Just don't stop mashing and mixing it up until you remove from the heat


Yum!

I watched the food network all day yesterday. I happened to catch the Bobby Flay throw down against the Colluci Brothers in Hyannis, MA

Inspired and in need of a home cooked meal to make for my friend's birthday, I jotted down a few notes and from those made a meatloaf today

A dash of local for every season
