NOVEMBER: Diana’s Meat Loaf A La Silver Palate

We were doing a dinner for a family the other night that wanted homey meals like meat loaf .  I was discussing which recipe to use with my friend Diana, when she informed me that she had the best recipe, but it was in her head.   She offered to come over and make it for me and I diligently wrote it all down.  Luckily it turned out to be a cool evening and it was a great success.

Ingredients:

4 lbs ground beef
1.6 lbs ground lamb
1.5 lbs ground pork
1 lb Italian sausage

7 large eggs, beaten
2 cups toasted bread crumbs
8 T. dijon mustard
1 large Spanish onion, diced
2 boxes frozen spinach, defrosted, drained and squeezed
salt and pepper to taste

1.5 lbs bacon
28 ounces tomato sauce

Mix everything together except the bacon and tomato sauce.  Test for seasoning.

Shape into three freeform meat loafs.
Cover with bacon slices.
Pour tomato sauce over the tops.

Bake for 1.5 hours at 350 degrees.
