Meat Loaf Recipe




1 slice white bread, crumbed

¼ cup tomato juice plus scant ½ cup tomato juice

2 large or 3 medium cloves garlic, pressed

Salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste

½ teaspoon dried rosemary

½ teaspoon dried thyme

¼ teaspoon dried oregano

¼ teaspoon dried basil

1 pound ground chuck


Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. Place the fresh white bread crumbs in a bowl, and add the ¾ cup of tomato juice. Mix well.

Add the garlic, salt and pepper, and four herbs, and mix well again. Now add the meat, and knead with your fingers till all is well blended. Shape into a loaf. Do not try to pack it together tightly. This is not supposed to be a dense meatloaf. Place in a loaf pan or any other suitable pan. Pour the scant ½ cup to tomato juice evenly over the top. (Some will collect around the meatloaf in the pan.) Place uncovered in the oven and bake for 1 hour. Serves 3-4.
