Get Creative In The Kitchen With Our Summer Meatloaf
Hey there, busy mom!
As always, we hope you’re having the best week so far.
We know that summer is a great time to enjoy home-cooked meals, but sometimes it just gets so hot that you don’t even wanna use the oven. Sure, we might not be able to roast or bake food, but the heat can get so intolerable that it’s just not worth it. The great thing is that summer is a great opportunity to get creative around the kitchen, so we can cook our favorite classic meals without turning too much heat on. Today, we are sharing our Summer Meatloaf recipe once again.
Who said that meatloaf can only be made in the oven? No one. So we can still enjoy this satisfying, heartwarming meal with our kids and family while using the stove or our grills instead, and the bonus is that it’s also quick, easy, and oh-so-delicious! This timeless dish will make summers even more exciting, and even though meatloaf doesn’t go out of style, that doesn’t mean we can’t work around the way we cook them!
2 lbs ground beef
1 cup of Panko bread crumbs
½ cup milk
Teriyaki sauce or soy sauce
Molasses (to sweeten the taste)
Skillet or pan
Put your skillet or your pan onto the stove over low heat to make sure that it’s hot enough when we place the meatloaf.
Let’s start with our base. In a bowl, add in the ground beef. Crack 2 eggs, then add a cup of Panko bread crumbs, half a cup of milk, teriyaki sauce, ketchup, molasses, salt, and garlic powder.
Mix it all together with your hands while wearing a glove, or you can use a wooden spoon instead. Make sure you mix everything really well to make sure all the seasonings are spread and evened out. Grab a handful or a spoonful and form it into patties, and put it right on your skillet.
Grill the meatloaf pieces indoors or cook them on a pan, whatever you like! The meatloaf will be ready in a few minutes and can be served while it’s warm with a yummy side salad made out of cabbages, salt, butter, and your favorite seasonings. Can be made crispy on the edges, and juicy on the inside. Yum!
A pro tip: Plan your meals in advance by sectioning them and plating everything. It makes a beautiful aesthetic that satisfies the eyes and the stomach, and you can stretch your meals to save up on money! You can serve a lot of side salad to make your kids fill up on vegetables too.
This is a meal that you can enjoy al fresco in your backyard, or serve to guests as you catch up and enjoy your favorite shows. You can get a lot more creative in the side salad and use summer veggies! You can also add veggies to your meatloaf.
