Sometimes, it is just fun to look through vintage cookbooks to see what meals where like during a certain time period. On our other blog, I posted a few vintage recipes, served on vintage dishes. I thought I would also share them here!
I don’t know what it is about meatloaf. No one gets excited about it, but everyone seems to love it. It is a comfort food and probably reminds us of mom in the kitchen and gathering with the family for a meal. When I found this recipe, I was surprised at how “frosting” it with mashed potatoes really dresses it up and makes it something special. Try it out, I think you’ll be surprised too!
3 pounds ground beef
2 cups plain breadcrumbs
Salt and pepper to taste
1 jar sliced green olives (optional)
1 small can sliced black olives (optional)
Shape into 2 rectangular loaves (freeze one for later) and bake on a jelly roll pan
Bake @ 350 degrees about 45 minutes
While meatloaf is baking, get mashed potatoes ready. When meatloaf is done, place on baking sheet and “frost” with mashed potatoes. Sprinkle some paprika on top and place under broiler until is just starts to brown. Garnish and serve on a vintage platter. Enjoy!
