Mushroom Meatloaf

As you know if you are a regular, portabella mushrooms are a particularly popular food in this house to express love and desire. This meatloaf combines the love power of the mushroom with the retro chic of meatloaf.

Portabella Meatloaf

3 portabella mushroom caps, scrape gills and chop finely
5 garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 pound ground beef
1 cup soft breadcrumbs
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
5 tablespoons tomato paste, divided

Heat the oven to 350F. Mix seasonings and mushrooms. Combine with beef, breadcrumbs, eggs, Worcestershire sauce and all but 2 tbsp. tomato paste. Gently press the mixture evenly into an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan, forming a rounded loaf. Spread remaining tomato paste over top. Bake, uncovered, 1 hr. 10 minutes

  3. I can’t open your site from Mozilla any longer; I have to use IE. I get a message that I have to open application/x-httpd-php5 & save to disk when I use Mozilla.

  4. Weird Liz. Nothing has changed on this end…

  5. Well, I will just use IE. Nothing can keep me away from Retro Food!
