It's just butt ugly, isn't it?
It might have been prettier with a baked-on squiggle of ketchup, but I banned commercial ketchup from my kitchen a long time ago. Can't stand the flavorings.
I don't even crave meatloaf; probably haven't eaten any in 30 years.
But I had the makings. A lump of good ground beef, and a spicy Italian sausage. Peel the casing off the sausage and mingle the meats with breadcrumbs, an egg, some chopped onion and any seasonings that appeal to you. I didn't use a recipe. It just came together, and I was pleased with it.
A side of mashed potatoes, and we're in Cozy Comfort Cavern!
Best of all, there are leftovers, and I'm making meatloaf hash. I only heard of meatloaf hash for the first time a week or so ago, but if you Google it, it exists, in plenitude.
I'm really looking forward to meatloaf hash.
(Good thing I didn't put any ketchup on it.)
