To make your own Ballet Meatloaf...or Soccer Meatloaf, or Gymnastics Meatloaf...you will need:
(This recipe made three...which can all be cooked at once or cook one and put the others in the freezer or cook them all and put some in the freezer or well... you get the idea)
- 4 # hamburger meat
- 1 yellow onion diced (med. to lg.)
- 3 slices whole wheat bread (or any bread you have or want)
- 3 eggs
- Salt and Pepper
I usually use my hands - it seems to be the easiest way to get it all mixed together. Then I wash them really well about 6 times because truth be told raw hamburger meat grosses me out!
Stick them in a 350 degree oven for at least an hour and Voila! Ballet Meatloaf!
This last performance while the Ballet Meatloaf was cooking I did a little Valentine project for my girlies. Which come to think of it goes right along with the ballet performance theme I have going on here. Being a ballerina there are certain aches and pains that are unavoidable...and sometimes you need a little something to make you feel better....(of course chocolate works well also!) I made each of my girlies a little bundle that they can put in the microwave and heat up if they want to apply heat to various body parts.
We moved right on to enjoying our Ballet Meatloaf! When it comes out of the oven there is liquid in the baking dish...this can be left or poured out - I have done both and the flavor is good either way.
Well, the next time you have a ballet performance, a soccer match, or maybe you just don't want to have to think about cooking...try the Ballet Meatloaf. I think you'll like it!
