I started getting Food Network magazine around Christmas time and really enjoy reading it. I have found most of the recipes to be fairly basic but fun to look at and figure out ways to change them up. In the December issue there was a recipe for Skillet Meatloaf and I decided to take that and mix it up a little bit. This recipe is a bit like a deconstructed briouat.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 egg
- 1/2 c bread crumbs
- 1 tbsp salt and pepper
- 2 tbsp cumin
- 1 tsp hot paprika
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- a handful of chopped up Italian parsley
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and use your hands to mix well. Then begin forming into small meatloaf rounds, about 3 inches long and an inch thick. In a skillet add 2 tbsp vegetable oil. When heated, add several of the rounds, making sure not to crowd the pan. Cook through about 4 minutes on each side.
I also made a sauce to accompany them by mixing;
- 3 tbsp white vinegar
- 1/2c brown sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4c of ketchup
- 1/2c water
Simmer in a saute pan and allowed to simmer until reduced. My husband thought the sauce was too sweet, so you could increase the amount of vinegar to have a more tangy flavor.
The potatoes I simply peeled and boiled, smashed with butter, heavy cream, cumin, garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste.
