In the photo below, do you see the liquid pooling in the crack near the center of the loaf? And the liquid in the corners of the of the dish? That is fat. That is hot, liquid fat that cooked out of the meat. Blargh!
|This is not an optical illusion. It really did look this gross.|
I shouldn't bitch too much about this. I knew I'd be putting my health and stomach lining on the line in the name of science when I started this blog. All I'm saying is that I'd better get a Nobel Prize for my efforts one of these days. I'm like Marie Freakin' Curie, here!
|I have the coolest loaf pan, though.|
2 pounds ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 cup fine dry breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped onion
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 hard-cooked eggs
Combine all ingredients except hard-cooked eggs. Pack half the meat mixture into a 5x9 inch loaf pan. Arrange shelled hard-cooked eggs in a lengthwise row through center of loaf. Pack remaining meat mixture over eggs. Bake in moderate oven (350° F) until done, about 1½ hours. Serve hot or cold. Serves 8.
