Pardon the disgusting brown blob, but if you look at it like, "This is a pretty meatloaf." It isn't so bad.
So here it is...Woman's Day Lamb, Balsamic and Sundried Tomato Meat Loaf.
1 Lemon (oops, I knew I forgot something)
2 Large eggs
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
Salt and Pepper
1/2 cup rolled oats
4 Cloves garlic (or some powder in my case b/c hubby threw the garlic away 2 nights ago)
2 Large shallots
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes, chopped
1 Tbsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 1/2 lb ground lamb (I just used a pound b/c A: that's all they had and 2: it's expensive)
I prepped this during a nap time (which seems to be few and far between lately) and put it in the fridge until hubby was on his way home. It only took about 15-20 minutes to prep and only 40 minutes in the oven.
-Mix the eggs, vinegar, 1/4 tsp salt 1/2 tsp pepper in mixing bowl and 2 zest strips from lemon.
-Add oats and coat.
-I added my ghetto garlic powder in with the salt and pepper, but now you would add your sliced garlic, chopped shallots, sundried tomatoes, and rosemary.
-Stir it all up and add the meat. I suppose that ground beef would be fine to use for this recipe too, but I loved how lean the lamb was, and it definitely has a different texture...if meatloaf can have a different texture.
-I used my hand to kneed it together so that the oat mixture was all incorporated.
-Form into a loaf on a aluminum foil covered cookie sheet (making clean up a cinch).
-Bake at 375 for 40-45 minutes
-Enjoy the sound of your husband loving meatloaf after he has spent the last 3 years of marriage saying he doesn't like meatloaf.
And just so this post doesn't leave you wanting a cute picture of one of my sweet babies...here is mister mini meatloaf. In his meatloaf-ish swaddler!
Isn't it the cutest meatloaf you have ever seen!
ps. how many more times could I say meatloaf in this post?!? :)
