For some people meatloaf is a comfort food.  My comfort food is cottage cheese and noodles.  It is a dish  that my mom made when I was young and to this day I still like eating it.

Making meat loaf is not a difficult recipe to follow.  Actually meat loaf can be made using a variety of ingredients and its components can be broken down into several parts: ground beef; vegetables such as onion, celery, corn, peppers, carrots and peas; spices; and binders such as eggs and bread.  Other additions can include shredded cheese.   I made the following recipe using bison.  


2 pounds ground beef or ground bison
2 slices of bread
½ cup milk
2 carrots, chopped
2 stalks of celery, diced
1 onion, chopped
1 ½ cups frozen corn niblets
2 eggs, beaten
several dashes of Worcestershire sauce
several squirts of ketchup
salt and pepper to taste


In a bowl, tear the bread into pieces and add the milk.  Let it sit for several minutes.  In a large bowl, add all of the ingredients together including the bread and mix well.  Place into a large casserole dish at 350 degrees F and bake for one hour.  Serves 6 to 8 people.   The following pictures shows the meat loaf being mixed in the bowl and in the large casserole dish before going into the oven.
