In the kitchen, as well as in life, the best things happen when you least expect them. The other day I just didn’t have a clue what do make for dinner, so I opened the fridge and started thinking. It was 19:20 or so, and I only had ricotta, eggs and a big bag of fresh spinach. At first I thought to make some scramble eggs, nothing special, but then the “carnivorous” side of my head said: “NO. You-want-meat.”
I ran to the supermarket down the street, but they didn’t have good enough meat. It was 19:40. I wanted to make a meatloaf at any cost, so I ran back home, got my car keys and drove to a big grocery store where I would have surely reached my goal. Here it was: fresh and first-rate ground meat. “YES, you got it”, said my inner voice. I came home at 20:10, happy to have what I craved for. I grabbed my camera, gathered the ingredients and started my creation!
To obtain a soft and creamy inside and a crispy top, turn the meatloaf halfway through cooking. Slice it only when its cooled down and if you want to freeze the slices, you can put them in a plastic container. Don’t freeze all the slices together but use some baking sheets to create separate layers.
