Being of Hungarian descent, I love cooking at least 1 or 2 good Hungarian meals a week for my family. Hungarian food is rich in flavour and definitely a foodies experience. We use a lot of sweet red pepper powder, as well as onions and garlic for flavour. The recipe I am sharing is my mother's and is so popular with friends that when there is any kind of get together, my mother doesn't ask what to bring--she automatically makes her infamous meat loaf.
3 pounds of combo--ground veal/ground pork/ground beef
2 large onions - diced
6 cloves of garlic - minced
Chicken Powder Mix - i.e. - Knorr - 2 tablespoons
Dash of Salt
1 large egg
1 Mild Hungarian Kielbasa
Combine and mix the first 6 ingredients. Insert into a loaf pan or something similar in shape. Before inserting meatloaf, sprinkle bread crumbs on the bottom of pan.
Make an incision into the center of the meatloaf to place the Kielbasa in the center and then smooth out.
Sprinkle bread crumbs on top of meatloaf.
Bake at 350 until completely done.
The meatloaf has such a rich smokey flavour.
I serve it with mashed potatoes, vegetables and a salad.
The beauty of this dish, is that you can slice the meat loaf for sandwiches. It's deliriously delicious.
Let me know how you like it.
