I am visiting my daughter and her husband and because he works a lot of overtime and she is going to school, I have volunteered to do all the cooking. My son-in-law does not like change, making it a real challenge to modify recipes, especially his favorite ones. This recipe was inspired by the recent contest here.
My son-in-law's favorite meatloaf," has been modified by adding sprouted grain bread crumbs instead of regular, parsley, and fresh vegetables instead of canned tomatoes , vegetable broth instead of milk, and a low ingredient teriyaki sauce instead of using a mixture of three different condiments and sugar. I wanted to make the recipe with more whole foods using less processed ingredients. Follow through to see if it passed his taste test.
Step 1: Ingredients and Utensils
1 Beaten egg
1 Slice of Sprouted Grain Bread broken into small pieces
1-2 stalks of celery finely chopped
1 Bell Pepper chopped
1 Bunch of small green onions with tops chopped
1/2 Cup chopped parsley
Teriyaki sauce I used Tastefully Simple yum!
Whole sesame seeds
Himalayan Pink Salt , sea salt, or regular salt
1/2 cup vegetable broth ( I make my own by reserving the broth when I cook vegetables and freeze it. )
I used three small loaf pans but 1 regular size will be fine if you don't have the small ones. You will need to add more time when you bake the larger loaf.
Bake 325 degrees F for 45 minutes to one hour
Step 2: Preparing
Beat egg slightly
Break bread into small pieces
Step 3: Add Ingredients
Add all the vegetables reserving 1-2 tablespoons of the celery, onions, and bell peppers for the garnish.
Add egg to the mixture.
Add salt and mix well.
Step 4: Form Into Loaves
Form into individual loaves as shown ( makes 1 large or 3 small )
Top lightly with Teriyaki sauce
Step 5: Bake
Bake loaves at 325 degrees F for 45 minutes to one hour.
5 minutes before the meatloaf is done, warm the teriyaki sauce in the microwave or on top of the stove.
Drizzle a little sauce over the tops of the meatloaf.
Sprinkle tops with sesame seeds.
Top the meatloaf with the fresh celery, onions, and bell pepper.
Step 6: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts
I was very surprised my son-in-law gave it two thumbs up. We tease him because he has a lot of rules to making food. We are trying to help him reduce the amount of carbs and fat because his blood sugar is too high.I recently posted a vegetarian meatloaf that passed his taste test using his favorite meatloaf recipe also! I just might go for three.
I wish to thank Instructables, our sponsors, contributors, and all my visitors for making this a great place to share. Thanks for stopping by and do have a great week!
