Mexican Meatloaf recipe

I share this Meatloaf recipe, as it is known in the United States, and one of my favorites because it makes me remember great memories of my childhood. It is prepared with ground beef in the oven. Easy to prepare, ideal to show off with those you love or for a very special occasion.

There are countless versions from country to country, for example in the United States it is usually prepared with breadcrumbs and sometimes it is decorated with a mixture of tomato sauce and brown sugar. In the UK they prepare it with vegetables and potatoes. Other regions they put the covering of puff pastry. In Mexico there is a great variety of meat pie recipes, in some regions boiled eggs are placed in the center.

It is made of beef or you can mix it with pork, fine herbs are added, they can be fresh or dry such as thyme, marjoram, garlic, salt, pepper as well as tomato and egg to give it more moisture, also for the flavor we talk about Maggi sauce, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, last but not least, carrot. They are divided into two, between these two cream cheese is added, and to decorate, slices of bacon and ketchup. It is a recipe loaded with a lot of flavor.

Without further ado, I’ll show you my version of the Mexican meatloaf, an easy recipe that I assure you, will stay forever in your recipe books, this recipe has some variations which I have incorporated over the years.

Meatloaf is one of my favorite recipes, you will surprise everyone.
