Meatloaf with Mushroom gravy

Had about 8oz of mushrooms and needed to use them, and this seemed like a good idea at the time, is a fairly light consistency and not dense or heavy


  1. 1 1/2 lbs ground beef 80/20 lean
  2. 8 oz fresh mushrooms sliced thin and chopped
  3. 1/2 medium onion chopped
  4. 3/4 cup bread crumbs
  5. 1-2 eggs
  6. 2 tbls Equal parts flour and butter
  7. 1 (14.5 oz) can beef broth
  8. to taste Salt and pepper
  9. Ketchup


  1. Sauté onion and 1/4 of the mushrooms in a bit of olive oil until onions are translucent and mushrooms have browned a bit, set aside to cool

  2. Combine ground meat, cooled mushroom mixture, bread crumbs, eggs, and season with salt and pepper mix thoroughly

  3. Lightly oil the bottom of a baking dish and form meat mixture into a loaf brush with ketchup

  4. Bake in a 350deg oven for about 1 hour or until meat thermometer registers 135deg then remove from oven and rest for about 10 minutes before slicing

  5. While meatloaf is in the oven melt butter in a heavy bottom sauce pan and sauté mushrooms until most of the moisture has evaporated, sprinkle with flour to make a roux (use more flour and butter if you want a thicker gravy) and cook for a couple of minutes add beef broth and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer stirring until gravy thickens, adjust seasoning
