So last year my friend Paul and I went to Pittsburgh to visit his family, we had a great time with his Dad as I call him “Papa Kovac”.
The first night when we got there Papa K made us dinner his famous Meatloaf, Haluski and Asparagus 🙂
The meal was so Delicious!!! Loved it all but I got his Meatloaf recipe and I made it myself 🙂
Here are Papa Kovac and Paul during dinner
The Delicious meal!!!
Me and Paul being silly with some graphics
As this posts I am back in Pittsburgh with Paul and we are visiting with his Dad, this time we are going to do some cooking and of course go on some adventures around town 🙂
I will blog about my trip in the coming weeks 🙂 In the meantime enjoy Papa K’s Meatloaf!!
the chopped onion, red pepper, celery and garlic
saute this up
add to a big bowl with the meats, oats, egg & milk
Mix it up with your hands 🙂
Now I always take a piece and fry up in a Skillet
I like to taste just to make sure I have the
seasonings right…does anyone else do this?
taste good, seasonings are good
free form it on a lined baking sheet
Bake it up
Okay now I love the flavor on its own
BUT!!!! i just can’t eat meatloaf without
Ketchup!!! and not any ketchup…
HEINZ KETCHUP!!!! it is a MUST!!
yes I am a Ketchup snob 😛

1 large or 2 small onions, diced
2 stalks celery, diced

Saute in a large skillet the onions, celery, red pepper and garlic until softened.
In a large bowl add sauteed mixture, meats, oats, egg, salt, pepper and milk mix together with your hands. If you want to check for seasonings take a little of the mixture and make a patty and fry is up, taste it for seasonings if you like the taste…done…if not add to your taste.
Free form the mixture into a loaf on a lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes to 90 minutes.
Let set for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
