It’s getting cooler in Canada and we’re ‘ KRAVING” comfort foods again and with our kids back in school it’s nice to have leftovers for a hearty lunch. This recipe makes a hearty mushroom meatloaf, packed with flavour and protein and finished off with a tasty mushroom sauce. Mushrooms not only pack crazy flavour, they also are great to extend the budget for your meals. Use the blend and extend technique by blending in mushrooms with your meat to take your meals that much further.

What I love about this recipe is that everything is prepared in my food processor and all I have to do is stick that in the oven for 45 – 60 minutes while I go about my other chores.



1 lb mushrooms

2 lbs medium ground beef

1 slice bread

1 red onion quartered

4 cloves garlic

2 green chilies

1 egg

1 tsp each red chili and cumin powder



1/2 cup chopped coriander

1 – 2 tsps butter

3 boiled eggs

2 tsps cornstarch mixed with water



Process the bread and keep the fresh breadcrumbs aside

Slice half the mushrooms and keep aside

In the food processor, add the remaining mushrooms, onion, garlic and chili and process

Add the ground meat, spices, salt and pepper, egg and process

Add the fresh breadcrumbs and coriander and process

Remove and add to a bowl and mix well

Take a small bit of the meat mixture and fry to taste for salt and spices

Add more salt and spices if required

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan

Add a cookie sheet under the loaf pan to prevent drips

Fill the loaf pan with meat mixture so it forms one inch at the bottom and pack it in tightly with a spoon

Add 3 boiled eggs back to back and cover with the remaining mixture

Bake for 45 – 60 minutes

In a saute pan add some butter and sauté the sliced mushrooms

Tip the meatloaf juices into the pan and add cornstarch to thicken

Let the meatloaf cool before slicing and serve with the mushroom sauce
