>What’s Cooking Wednesday

>Every week I think I should do a post for this and then it waits until another day of the week. Well, no more. I love posting recipes, so Wednesday will now be the day!

This week, it’s an old standard that most of my friends have already swiped… my meatloaf. I can still call it that, despite the fact that it never turns out very loaf-y… I get a little carried away with the good stuff added in. 🙂

We tore through ours a little too fast to get a picture.

Elle’s Famous Meatloaf

1 to 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 package onion soup mix
2 eggs
20 saltine crackers, crushed
4oz package feta cheese, crumbled
fresh spinach leaves, torn
mushrooms, chopped

Mix all together – add spinach and mushrooms to your own taste (as I mentioned above, I tend to go a little overboard). Put in greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until cooked through.


*This makes fabulous meatloaf sandwiches the next day, if you have any left!!

** make certain that your feta isn’t too salty. I’ve found Athenos and Crystal Farms are good brands, but others have made meatloaves akin to salt licks.
