Image

Directions:

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef

1 large egg  (beaten)

1 cup milk

1 1/4 tsp. sea salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1 cup bread crumbs

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. In a large mixing bowl, add beef, egg and milk. Begin to mix well. Add sea salt, black pepper and bread crumbs. Mix well.

2. In a lightly oiled baking pan, form meat into the shape of a loaf.

3. Bake for 1 hour or until the meat is brown and the inside is cooked.  Let cool for 15 minutes before slicing. (You will be adding it to the gravy soon.)

Gravy Ingredients:

1 large sweet onion (sliced thin)

2 tbsp. olive oil

1/4 tsp. sea salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

3 tbsp. butter

2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups beef stock

1/2 cup white wine

Directions:

1. Heat a medium skillet with olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the sliced onions. Stir.  Add sea salt and black pepper. Sauté for about 3-4 minutes. (set to the side)

2. In a separate skillet,  add 2 tbsp. butter. When the butter is melted, add flour and stir. Lower heat to medium and continue stirring. The mixture should turn a golden color. (about 3 minutes)

3. Add beef broth and stir well so the flour mixture melds into the broth.

4. Add the white wine and continue to stir well. Add cooked onions. Allow the sauce to thicken. (about 10 minutes) Stir frequently so it doesn’t stick to the bottom.

5. Add sliced pieces of meatloaf to pan and coat all pieces with the gravy.

Serve hot. *If you want more gravy, double the gravy recipe.
