is the ultimate comfort food. I've made many different recipes for meatloaf, but basic is the best.
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 medium egg
- 2 slices whole wheat bread, crumbed (I ripped the bread into pieces, put it in my mini food processor, whirred it around a few times and voila!... fresh crumbs)
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce with oregano, garlic, and basil, divided
Combine the ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, freshly ground black pepper, and about half of the tomato sauce in a large mixing bowl. Mix together just until combined.
Place the mixture into a glass meatloaf pan and pour the remaining sauce over the top. Put it in the oven and let it bake for an hour.
Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
