Good meatloaf is about as comforting as comfort food gets. Thankfully, meatloaf doesn't have to be complicated to be good. It just needs to be tender (from breadcrumbs soaked in milk and gentle handling) and flavorful (from onion, garlic, and ketchup). We use a 50-50 mix of ground beef and ground pork and if you're wondering how long to cook meatloaf, this fan-favorite recipe takes 45-55 minutes at 400°F.
Dan Dan Noodles
Making chili oil from scratch is easy and adds a delicious complex flavor to this dish, but you can use regular hot chili oil instead in a pinch.
Ginger-Peanut Turkey Stir-Fry
For a fast—and satisfying—weeknight dinner turn to this stir fry. It's also a fresh answer to the age-old question of what to do with that package of ground meat in the freezer. A bold and silky sauce made with lime juice, fish sauce, peanut butter, and chili compliments just about any type of ground meat you have on hand. Serve it up with rice, loads of fresh herbs, and big, wrap-able greens.
Pork Egg Rolls
Plenty of ground pork and veggies make this take-out favorite quicker and tastier than delivery. The egg rolls can be fried or baked; surprisingly, calorie-wise, both are about the same.
Made from a combination of beef and pork, these meatballs are a Scandinavian favorite that goes from appetizer to main in a flash (just add noodles). It's a tradition to serve them with sweet-tart lingonberry jam; if you can't find it, grape or red-currant jelly is a good substitute.
With a savory blend of meats, flavorful cheese, and garlic, these meatballs are sure to be an instant favorite. The meatballs can be cooked without the sauce: Just reduce the heat to medium once they've browned, and cook for 5 to 10 minutes.
