Karl’s Moroccan Meatloaf with Onion Gravy

We have had company for the last several days, so I wanted a Sunday dinner that was not hours of preparation. An American standard meal of meatloaf, potatoes, and green beans seemed like a good idea. Of course, I could not make it that simple I had to get spontaneously creative.

Claudia’s Meatloaf

Before I left home for the first time, I sat down with my mother’s recipe box and wrote down my favorite dishes.  The recipe below is all that was written on both sides of my mother’s 3 x 5 card. When my siblings got together to combine all of the recipes we saved, one of my sisters had a different variation our mother uses of this iconic 1950’s American staple.

Note: I have not made this dish this way in years, so I do not have any pictures of it. Continue reading

Karl’s Meatloaf Hamburgers

Last week, in posting about my meatball chili, I mentioned that I had made meatloaf hamburgers the day before. I did not post it, because I had not taken a photo before I scarfed it down. It was so good that Jan wanted it again for the Fourth of July barbecue. I was not as hungry today, so I took time to take a picture.

Karl’s Mini-Meatloaves

I made meat loaf recently and both Jan and Eilene complained that there was too much “loaf” and not enough “crusty bits.” To make up for this deficit, I decided to make mini-meatloaves. These would be small enough so that they would be all crusty end bits.

Karl’s Meatloaf with Orange Marmalade Sauce

Jan requested that I make meatloaf for dinner. Both Jan and Eilene like the outsides of the loaf  to have plenty of “crusty bits.” One way to please them is to make mini-meatloaves. A second, easier, way is to not make the loaf too thick—a low thin loaf. Add some fry bread and a salad and you have a really nice meal.

Karl’s Lamb Klops with Apricot Sauce for Hanukkah

Jan, Miriam, and Eilene all wanted latke for the last day of Hanukkah. I made both regular potato latke and less traditional sweet potato latke. Miriam also wanted roasted Brussels sproutsLatke and sprouts are both side dishs, so I decided I wanted to make a stuffed meatloaf as my main dish, a variation on an Ashkenazi klops.

Karl’s Game of Thrones Stuffed Meatloaf

Eilene is having friends over for Tuesday night shows and I always try to make something exotic for them. Looking at the recipes for Game of Thrones, they are either too simple, too complex, or take too long to make.
