I read a review the other day about the new chef at The Senator restaurant. But while reading the article all I could think about was the meatloaf recipe that I clipped from the paper on March 15, 1989. The Senator's Meatloaf is legendary. It is easy to make and if your family likes mushrooms you have to make the mushroom sauce!
2T butter; 1med onion, minced; 1stalk of celery, minced; 1lb lean ground beef; 1 egg; 3 T ketchup; 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce; 3 dashes tobasco; 1t oregano; s&p.
Melt butter in a frying pan and add onion and celery, cook until tender. Combine with remaining ingredients. Spoon in to a loaf pan and bake for 45min at 350 degrees F.
For the mushroom sauce you will need: 1C thinly sliced mushrooms; 2T butter; 1T flour; 1C chicken stock; dash of soy sauce. Brown mushrooms in butter, then add flour. Cook until golden and then add remaining ingredients. It will thicken and you will love it over a slice of the meatloaf!
