This is a recipe from Greens, Glorious Greens caught my attention early on. The title was Uncle Eddie’s Spiral Meatloaf with Mixed Greens. According to the introduction, Uncle Eddie had been an army cook. My Uncle Eddie was a Navy cook. We loved him dearly. It is a strange connect, but I just had to make this recipe and we are all glad I did.
The flavor is satisfying and the recipe is visually stunning. For not taking any more time than it did, this meatloaf rates as fine company fare. Except for doubling the recipe, I followed it pretty closely. In the final analysis I thought it needed more glaze. Oh, that glaze! This rendition of the recipe takes added glaze into the final draft.
An option is to make a gravy with the drippings from the baking pan to serve over the meat. This is an especially good idea if your meat is lean and dry.

Looks and sounds amazing, can almost taste it from the pictures. 🙂
What is sprinkled over the greens in the photo? It looks like shredded cheese, yet I see no reference to cheese in the ingredients. Breadcrumbs? It says to mix them with the meat, so what is the mystery ingredient spread over the greens prior to rolling?
looks like grated parmesan, romano, or locatelli cheese – not sure though, since we don’t have an answer yet. I have a similar recipe with chicken breast pounded thin – I really want to try this with the glaze…
