Medicated Meatloaf

Marimomma’s Meatloaf: medicated protein extreme!

By: Kristin Cerda

 

Meatloaf is one of the tastier ways of keeping you full and happy through a cold winter, or just a long day, thanks to its amazing punch of protein. I’m a big advocate of proteinful breakfasts and lunches, and in fact, I’ve had this meatloaf thinly sliced on toast with a fried egg on top as a breakfast meal, many times. Pair it with a glass of OJ before a big day….BOOM! Brain and body power for a whole morning.

Meatloaf is one of those dishes that is good for cleaning out the fridge. Simply finely chop any leftover veggies (carrots and squash make great choices), meats, and even pasta, and add it to your base mix. It will all cook into one delicious mess of meat.

Marijuana oil or butter is the trick to making this medicated meatloaf. Just remember to cook your veggies, especially onion and garlic, in cannabis butter or oil. Be sure to take all the normal sanitary precautions necessary when working with raw meat.

 

Oven setting:

  • 350 degrees, for 1 hour

  • Middle rack

 

The Basic Ingredients:

  • 1lb. ground beef (85% lean)

  • ¼ cup Quick-cook oatmeal (if using pasta, remove the oatmeal)

  • 1 can diced tomato

  • ¼ cup diced red bell pepper

  • 1 can Hunt’s Meatloaf Sauce

  • ½ cup Plain old ketchup

  • 1-2 eggs

  • 2 cloves diced garlic

  • ½ cup diced onion (yellow onion if you can find it)

  • anything else you want to throw in

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • *Dash of cayenne, if you want a little kick.

 

Hardware:

  • Loaf pan or baking sheet (ungreased)

  • Oven mitt or potholders

  • (optional) foil

 

Procedure:

  1. Warm your oil in a skillet on medium, to medium-high heat. Don’t let the oil smoke too much.

  2. Add garlic and onion to hot pan, stirring every few minutes. Cook until onions are translucent.

  3. While cooking, mix ketchup and meatloaf sauce together in a bowl and set aside.

  4. When onion and garlic are done, set them aside to cool a bit on a plate.

  5. Combine oatmeal, veggies, meat in a large mixing bowl with salt, pepper, egg, diced tomatoes, and other spices.

  6. Mix garlic and onion into the ingredients bowl, and work it all together with your (washed) hands, just until the ingredients look spread through out. Don’t overwork the meat.

  7. Place your meat mixture in your baking pan and top with the meatloaf sauce.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour, or until internal temperature reaches 155 degrees Fahrenheit. No thermometer? Look for bubbling and that the meat has pulled away from the edges of the rack.

  1. Let stand 10-15 minutes before cutting or removing from pan.

 

Pro-Tips:

1) Before you put the pan in the oven, place a folded towel on the counter and tap the bottom of the pan down on the covered counter several times to make sure everything has settled into the corners.

2) You don’t have to make your meatloaf in a loaf! Cover a baking sheet, or tray pan with foil (shiny side up) and form your meat mixture into something fun.

3) If you’re adding hard veggies like carrot, dice it really finely, or pre-cook them in a pan with oil a little. Soften them, but don’t brown them.
