Meatloaf and Roasted Basil Potatoes
We love meat. We love a lot of meat. Therefore, when you consider a LOAF of meat, you have built-in genius! The following is my take on that brilliance.
- Ground Beef (1.25lb)
- White Onion
- Freshly Ground Black Pepper
- 6 Small Red Potatoes
- Olive Oil
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Maggi Sauce
- Crushed Red Pepper
If you're in the mood for violence, you're in luck! Gently take two eggs out of the refrigerator, then BREAK THEM AND BEAT THEM SENSELESS!
Put your freshly beaten eggs aside somewhere cool, and get out a handful of mushrooms.
Cut them into fourths. (Or thereabouts)
Get out about ten crackers and put them in a bowl.
Then CRUSH THEM! HAHAHA!
Cut up about half a white onion.
Take everything you've just prepared, and dump it into a bowl with your meat.
Now if you're like me, and you hate getting your hands icky, this is the part where your luck runs out. You're going to hate this, but mix that shit up.
You're not done yet! Now put in your seasonings (Worcestershire, Tabasco, Maggi, parsley, red pepper, and a touch of olive oil)...
...and mix it all up again! Once it's mixed, shape it into a loaf pan.
Shove that shit into an oven at 375 for about an hour. While that's cooking, you can start on your side. I decided to make roasted red potatoes. I took my six potatoes and cut them into fourths.
Then grab a bowl and make a mixture of olive oil, basil, parsley, lots of salt and ground black pepper.
Roll your potatoes around in that crap, then put them in a dish lined with foil.
Roast those fuckers for a good 45 minutes. For the first 20, keep them covered.
When it's time, pull your loaf out of the oven (Careful! It's hot!), and drop it out of the pan on to a plate.
Slice that sucker up, and serve with your potatoes. Then, you know, eat it.
