  1. Well that’s a shame you didn’t get any snow, I thought for sure you would have gotten the same as we did.
    Thank you so much for letting me know your okay. Don’t work too hard, but it sounds like your knee deep in the work, and I bet your knees and back are hurting.
    I had to laugh when you said: “It has awakened my sweet tooth” lol
    Don’t worry about blogging when your so busy like that, at least now I know your okay. 🙂
    Talk to you soon and take it easy, which I know you probably won’t :O)

  4. Hi hon,

    I think I would love that onion and dill bread, fresh from the oven with butter on it. Sometimes I think you should have your own show on the food network, maybe an all loaf show, you could call it Liz’s Luscious Loafs, or something less corny. I would definitely watch it.

    Blessings…

  7. Hi Liz: Oh, that all looks so good. I do one that was Wolfgang Puck’s mother’s when they lived in the Black Forest. It uses mushrooms as the binder, no bread, and is wrapped in bacon. It is soooooo Good. Have a great day. HUGS

    Wolfgang’s Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf

    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 large onion, peeled and diced
    • 1/2 pound mushrooms, trimmed and finely chopped
    • 3 large cloves garlic, peeled and minced
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 pound each lean ground beef, pork, veal
    • 1 egg, lightly beaten
    • 3/4 pound sliced smoked bacon (about 13 slices)

    1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil.
    Sauté the onion until translucent, about 8 minutes.
    Add the mushrooms and garlic and cook over medium-hight heat
    until they just begin to color, 3-5 minutes. Stir in the cream,
    oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil,
    then reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender,
    about 5 minutes. Transfer the vegetable mixture to a large mixing
    bowl and let it cool.

    2. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Add to the bowl the beef, pork,
    and veal. Stir in the egg and continue mixing just until the
    ingredients are thoroughly combined.

    3. On a work surface, position a 9 by 5 by 3-inch loaf pan.
    Line the bottom and sides of the pan with the bacon slices,
    placing them parallel tot the short end and slightly overlapping,
    with their ends hanging over the edges.
    Add the meat mixture to the pan patting it down to make it
    smooth and even. Fold the ends of the bacon strips up and over
    the meat mixture to enclose it completely. Cover the loaf pan
    with aluminum foil.

    4. To prepare the water bath, place a roasting pan inside the oven
    on the middle shelf. Bring a kettle of water to boil. Using an oven
    glove, slide out part way from the oven the shelf with the roasting
    pan. Place the loaf pan in the center of the roasting pan.
    Carefully pour boiling water into the roasting pan to come
    halfway up the side of the loaf pan.
    Cover the roasting pan with aluminum foil.

    5. Carefully slide the shelf back into the oven and bake for 1 hour.
    Remove the foil and continue to bake until an instant-read
    thermometer inserted into the center of the meatloaf registers
    165 Fahrenheit, about 30 minutes more.

    6. Remove the pan of meatloaf from the oven and let it rest
    for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, carefully empty the boiling water
    from the roasting pan. Holding the loaf pan with oven gloves or
    pot holder, carefully pour the juices from the pan into a
    sauceboat or heatproof cup. Cut the loaf crosswise into 8 slices,
    taking care to cut completely through the bacon with each slice.
    Serve each slice drizzled with pan juices.
