I think I’ve finally perfected my meatloaf recipe.  I’ve tried so many things over the years and I think I’ve finally managed to create one that is both moist and tasty!

Yay me!

What really seemed to make the difference was using sourdough starter as a filler (instead of bread crumbs) and a binder (instead of eggs) and as the liquid (instead of milk).  Talk about all purpose!

I also like to use half ground beef and half ground pork.

And I think the smoked paprika gives it a nice kick.

  • 1  lb  ground beef (grass-fed preferred)
  • 1 lb ground pork (best quality you can find)
  • 1 cup sourdough starer
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup ketchup, orgainc
  • 2 tablespoons spicy brown or Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  1. In a large bowl combine the meats, sourdough starter and spices.
  2. Turn into a glass baking dish and shape into a loaf.
  3. Cook in a preheated 350 degree oven for 1/2 hours.
  4. While the meat is cooking mix together the ketcup, mustard and honey in a small bowl.
  5. After the 1/2 hour spread the ketchup mixture over the meat loaf and bake for an additional 1/2 hour.
I hope you try this reicpe.  It's a another delicious way to use your starter.
