As most of you know, I’m not a big meat eater, and up until last night, I had very little experience preparing and cooking meat. Even though I’ve heard awesome things about meatloaf (including that it’s one of E’s favorite dishes), I’ve always been a bit skeptical over it. It just seems strange. It’s never been a go-to meal for me and maybe that’s why I find it so weird.

On a good note, I think last night helped ease my feelings about this traditional dish. With Ethan’s help, we managed to whip up a flavorful Elkloaf. There are a few things I would do differently next time, but overall, it was pretty darn tasty. No funny tummy feelings for me, either. I’d say, it’s a win-win.

As grody as it sounds, soak a few slices of bread in some milk. We used plain soy milk.

Beat four eggs.

Prepare the sauce. We used a bit of brown sugar, tomato sauce, mustard, and ground pepper.

Combine the ingredients. We flavored the loaf with parsley, basil, oregano, and salt and pepper.

Bake for 60 to 65 minutes and serve! Yummmmmm.
