Greek Meatloaf Recipe


Do you ever have those moments in life when you think what in the world am I doing?  The other day I was taking a break in between lessons sipping a cup of Tea, thinking what in the world are you doing?  You are a tutor and a food blogger but can you do both???  I thought about it for a while and I said YES!!!  I love being a food blogger, sharing these wonderful recipes with all of you and having WONDERFUL and FUNNY comments left after each of my posts. 🙂  Some crack me up to the point where my stomach hurts from laughing so much!!!.  🙂 

Tutoring has become quite an interesting challenge.  I wasn’t sure what I was getting into when I first started but believe me there have times when I have been left with my jaw dropped to the floor.  I am so impressed as to what lengths people go to learn a new language. The fact that most of my students are self-taught just surprises me.  🙂 

Ok, back to the recipe, I remember growing up there were times my mom would make Meatloaf.  Not a fan of the Meatloaf with the boiled egg in the middle.  I try to avoid making Meatloaf as much as I can. 🙂  But on Sunday I was watching Chef Yiannis Loukakos making this Meatloaf recipe which I found to be interesting.  The show caught got my husband’s attention and then he turned and said “Let’s have Meatloaf for lunch”.  I rolled my eyes, 🙂 and responded MEATLOAF!!!! ufffff hehehheh

I tweaked the recipe but I have to admit this Meatloaf came out even better than I expected.  🙂

Have a great day everyone!! 🙂

  1. Looks fantastic, will definitely be trying it!

  2. Another interesting recipe as I had no idea what would constitute the Greek aspect of a meatloaf. And I think you’ve made a great choice by saying YES to both tutoring & food blogging! =]

  3. Looks delicious! I’ve never put carrots in my meatloaf before, interesting.😋

      Thank you!!! I know I found the recipe to be so interesting and it is delicious…and I’m not even a Meatloaf fan at all. 🙂

  4. Of course you can do them both as long as you enjoy them 😊 Is difficult to do things that you don’t like, you see it as only a job and that’s it. Not a fan of the meatloaf either but this looks delicious 😋 Thank you! 😘🤗

  5. I also have deep, emotionally derived meatloaf scars! My mom’s was the classic “meatloaf of the 60s” recipe 🤢 But my hubby has had several recent restaurant successful versions, all wrapped in bacon!😂 I bet he would love yours!💕
