Good Hot or Cold

Most people enjoy meatloaves. They are simple, good, and easy to put together. They are great warm, topped with gravy and served along with mashed potatoes or they can be sliced thinly and added to sandwiches or buns. Beef is a favorite but pork can also be used to make a tasty loaf and it offers a slightly different flavor.

This pork loaf is particularly nice to serve at Christmastime or any time you are having a crowd in and making lots of different menu items. Pork loaf adds variety and changes up the menu.

This recipe uses ground pork. Dried onion flakes and poultry seasoning are the magic ingredients that give this loaf its flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. pork, ground
  • 1/2 cup onion, grated (or dried onion flakes)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2-1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup spinach, finely sliced
  • 1/2 cup celery, finely diced
  • 1-2 shakes poultry seasoning, generous
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
