Michael's brother, Patrick, of Richmond, VA, challenged me to make an ultimate meat dish - meatloaf. But he had not stumped me - I've had a killer "meatloaf" recipe for years. Veggies sauteed in beer combine with milk-soaked breadcrumbs, soy crumbles, eggs, fresh parsley and herbs/spices to bring this comfort food home to the vegetarian and veg-friendly.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large onion, minced
  • 1 carrot, minced
  • 1 celery stalk, minced
  • 1 12oz dark or amber beer
  • 1 12oz package soy crumbles
  • 1 tsp each dried thyme and dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp each SnP
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4-1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup ketchup (use my homemade recipe)

Preparation

  1. Combine breadcrumbs and milk in a large bowl and set aside. You want a big bowl because at the end you'll be mixing everything together in this bowl before putting the meatloaf in the loaf pan.
  2. Heat butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, carrot and celery, stirring often, cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add beer and increase heat to medium-high. Cook until most liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes. After 5 minutes, add soy crumbles.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Stir in thyme, mustard, SnP, and allspice. Let cool for 5-10 minutes. You need to let this mixture cool a bit because you don't want it to hit the eggs and cook them while you are mixing everything together.
  6. Meanwhile put eggs and parsley in the bowl with the breadcrumb mixture and combine. Add the crumbles/veg mixture, when cooled, and gently incorporate.
  7. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray and add the mixture into the pan. Spread and flatten out. Spread ketchup on top.
