We have so many people ask about freezing recipes--well, we freeze most anything, though there are some things that are more "freezer-friendly" than others. This meatloaf is a classic for the freezer. I often make this just to divide up in portions, package, and freeze.
I want to pass on a little trick I learned today--this meatloaf has some good veggies in it--carrots, celery, onion--and the recipe says to chop them small in the food processor (or by hand), then sauté in 2 tablespoons butter. I was in a hurry today, so I decided to skip this step, thinking those veggies are so small, they should cook just fine in the meatloaf--and the added bonus, is this deletes 2 tablespoons of fat! I gave it a try and found it made no difference at all. So feel free to skip the last half of step 1 in this recipe.
Our Cookbook Blog
Our Cookbook ~ What We Cook, is a compilation of every recipe we (Janice and Carissa) cook - recipes from our cookbook collections, our recipe boxes, and our heads! We set up this blog for friends and family who have our cookbook to let them see pictures we post of the recipes in the book, and also for us to note any corrections, revisions, or additions to What We Cook. We encourage people who are cooking our recipes to let us know how the recipes turn out and any suggestions they might want to make.
In addition, we will be sharing some of our new recipes (along with pictures) that are not in our cookbook. We hope you will help us out and test recipes and give us your comments.
