Editor's Note: Bring some comfort to the dinner table with this easy Meatloaf recipe. This main course, which can be served with the author's recipe for Red Kidney Beans, is full of flavor. This recipe includes potato, egg, and so many more ingredients, resulting in a main course that everyone in the family will love. Keep this recipe in mind when the temperature starts to dip, as it is sure to warm you up inside and out. You'll love the addition of potato to this recipe, too. If you have leftovers, consider placing each slice on your favorite sandwich bread for a hearty lunch.

This is an unconventional meatloaf — instead of using bread, I add a raw grated potato, which gives the meat a light and moist texture. It is equally good served at room temperature.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus some for greasing the foil
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 baking potato, peeled and cut into large pieces
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 pound ground meat (½ pound ground veal and ½ pound ground beef; both ground together)
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • ½ cup tightly packed finely chopped flat parsley
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 9-by-5-inch Pyrex loaf pan with foil and brush the foil with oil.

  2. In a small skillet, heat the oil over low heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until lightly golden, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool.

  3. Transfer the onion mixture to a food processor and add the potato and egg. Pulse until very smooth.

  4. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl, and add the ground meat, tomato paste, ketchup, soy sauce, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix with your hands until thoroughly combined. Place the meat in the foil-lined pan and smooth the top.

  5. Place in the oven and bake for 55 minutes, or until lightly browned on top. Remove from the oven and let rest for 30 minutes before slicing (it will fall apart if it’s too hot).
