An herb-y meatloaf over roasted garlic mashed potatoes with a roasted garlic sauce!

During the work week, Sam does all the cooking, while I get to experiment with my cravings on the weekend. This past weekend I saw a picture of an amazing meatloaf so Sam and I set to work. We used a variation of this recipe, by Ina Garten, based on The 1770 House meatloaf, with some notable substitutions. Here is the revised edition, and it turned out amazing:

2 tablespoons good olive oil
2 cups chopped Spanish onion (1 large medium)
1 1/2 cups small-diced celery (2 1/2 stalks)
1 pound around 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 pound ground veal
1 pound about 1/2 lb ground pork
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh  a small mound of thyme leaves
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives  a bit of dried oregano
3 extra-large eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup whole milk some chicken stock, poured over the panko
2 tablespoons about 1 tbsp kosher salt
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
2 1/2 ish cups panko (Japanese bread flakes)
a sprinkling of paprika, chili powder, tonkatsu sauce (heavy on the worchester), some finely chopped garlic, some finely chopped shishito peppers, some red chili oil, 3 strips worth of bacon bits, 4 strips of bacon layered on top, and a pinch of togarashi.

Needless to say, it probably tastes only somewhat like the one in the recipe, but it was super awesome! We did follow the recipe for the garlic sauce, because some things are sacred, but we were both really happy with the result. Also, I got some useful tips on how to keep it nice and tender from this website, which really helped!

    How do you make the garlic sauce? I’m using her matzo ball recipe. More like ‘amazeballs’!

    Sounds and looks delicious. Bubby is allergic to garlic and I had to hide this post because just the word g….. makes her ill. I love meatloaf (when Sam’s mother was little that’s all we could afford.) Keep these posts coming. Sam, let us hear from you. I miss your wonderfully written posts. Love PopPop. PS, did Sam get my email saying that the NYTimes will, publish another article I’ve just written?

    Ooops. There are undoubtedly many 1770 Houses, but there is one in East Hampton. Next time you are in Southampton we’ll take you guys there, meatloaf or not.
