Swedish Meat Loaf Supper
Mom’s meat loaf goes continental with ground beef and pork, mushrooms and allspice. Half is saved for open-faced sandwiches served later in the week.
- Meat Loaf
- 1 can (4 ounces) mushrooms (pieces and stems), drained and finely chopped
- 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley, snipped
- 1 cup fresh rye or white bread crumbs (about 2 slices bread)
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice or nutmeg
- 1 pound lean (90%) ground beef
- 1 pound lean ground pork
- Noodles and Creamy Gravy
- 1 package (12 ounces) uncooked egg noodles
- 1 jar (12 ounces) mushroom or beef gravy
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/4 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 350°F. For meat loaf, finely chop mushrooms and onion using Food Chopper. Transfer to Classic Batter Bowl using Handy Scraper. Snip parsley, using Professional Shears. Add parsley, bread crumbs, milk, egg and seasonings to Batter Bowl; mix well.
Crumble ground beef and pork into Batter Bowl; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape meat mixture into loaf in Stoneware Loaf Pan.
Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 20 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in center of loaf and internal temperature of meat reaches 160°F using Digital Pocket Thermometer. Remove meat loaf to serving plate; let stand 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook noodles in (4-qt.) Casserole according to package directions; drain. For creamy gravy, heat gravy with milk in (1.5-qt.) Saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally with Silicone Sauce Whisk. Whisk in sour cream; remove from heat.
Cut meat loaf crosswise in half. Cut one half into 8 slices and serve with noodles and creamy gravy. Tightly wrap remaining half and refrigerate for up to 4 days for use in Millennium Meat Loaf Sandwiches.

Meat loaf slices best if you let it stand at room temperature 10 minutes before cutting.
Ground allspice is made from the dried berries of a tropical evergreen tree. Tasting like a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, it can be used in baked goods, pickled vegetables and savory dishes, like this meat loaf.
The heavy-duty glass Classic Batter Bowl, with its comfortable handle design, is the perfect bowl to use when mixing heavy mixtures like Swedish Meat Loaf Supper.
