Not so long ago, I posted a Meatloaf Sandwich that stemmed from this Meatloaf recipe. Well this update on that recipe has been hanging out in my computer since last summer. I don’t know why I haven’t posted it sooner- because it was certainly delicious!

I think that I just sort of choose my posts in the moment- like does today feel like a chicken soup or a chocolate cookie kind of day? Well I can certainly say that this is meatloaf weather we are having right now (like it’s cold and gray and depressing) and therefore I want hearty dishes like this. Preferably with a heaping side of mashed potatoes and a bottle of red wine. I think I am having serotonin issues.

Greek Meatloaf

So here is Greek Meatloaf. It tastes and looks more exciting than it sounds. It’s filled with oregano, parsley and mint and is studded with garlic, onions and feta cheese. I love it served with aforementioned mashed potatoes, or maybe these greek potatoes. Gah!! I’m drooling just thinking about it. If it is a meatloaf kind of night in your house, try this twist!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place all of the ground meat in a bowl, and mix in the onions, garlic, oregano and breadcrumbs. Add the eggs, ketchup, mint, parsley, salt and pepper and vinegar. Gently mix together with your hands. When it is well combined gently fold in the feta cheese and then place in a loaf pan.

In a small bowl mix together the ketchup, mustard, cayenne, cinnamon, smoked paprika, brown sugar and vinegar and mix until smooth.

5) Brush the mixture onto the top of the loaf, and place in the oven. (You may want to place a sheet pan underneath the loaf to catch drippings).
6) Bake until the center of the loaf reaches about 160 degrees, about 45 minutes, and then remove from the oven. If the top of the loaf gets too dark, then cover it with foil and continue to bake.
7) Let the loaf rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
