  • Meatloaf
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme, minced
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 pounds ground veal
  • Potato Topping
  • 1 1/2 pounds red potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Cooking Directions

    In a small skillet, sauté onion and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in the seasonings. Add broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Stir in green onions and thyme. Transfer to a large bowl; cool to room temperature.

    Whisk in the eggs; stir in bread crumbs. Crumble beef and veal over mixture and mix well. Shape into a loaf and place in an ungreased 13-in.x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

    Meanwhile, place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water; add salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until tender; drain, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Mash potatoes with the broth, oil, pepper and reserved cooking liquid.

    Using a large star tip, pipe mashed potatoes onto meat loaf. Bake 45 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees and meat is no longer pink.
