“Meatloaf”

Who says being a vegetarian means having to give up the staples from childhood? A little playing around with ingredients made for a good vegetarian meatloaf =)

This one has tons of wiggle room, and I encourage experimenting!

Meatloaf

Okay, so I made this tonight, and realized how small the portion is for this recipe, and how much I didn’t want to go to the store for onion soup mix, so here’s  tonight’s version which is a great side for four or entree for two:

3 eggs
1 packet of grillers
About 2 cups of oats (I used quick oats since it’s what I had on hand)
Ketchup (probably a little more than 1/2 cup)
1 tsp celery salt
Barbeque sauce, around 2 Tbsp
dried onion flakes, around 2-3 Tbsp
Around 1/3 cup Bisto (a vegetarian gravy mix from England, available in English and Indian goods stores, just make sure you get the basic one, the new special one isn’t vegetarian) or any vegetarian gravy mix or bouillon

Basically mix it all together till you get almost a cookie dough consistency, add more oats if it’s too sloppy or more ketchup if it’s too dry.

 

Spray a loaf pan with pam or any other grease, and spoon the mix in, I use the back of a spoon to pack it in then smooth out the loaf since it will be flipped.

 

Bake at 350 for around 50-60 minutes, until firm, heated through and a bit dry on top
(my Grillers were still frozen, if you thaw them first the baking time will likely be less)

 

I like to serve it like my mom always made real meatloaf, flipped onto a dish, with ketchup on top to make it pretty =)

The original recipe:

1 or 2eggs
Around 1-2 cups Morningstar Grillers or any fake ground beef
About 1 cup of oats
Ketchup
Onion soup mix

Mix, put in loaf pan, bake at 350 degrees, until firm and heated through
