What? You Have Never Heard of Meatloaf Wellington?

Well, me neither. I was at a holiday party where they served Beef Wellington. It was so elegant that the venue actually wheeled it around the room on a cart so that all of the holiday party guests could see how pretty it was.

Not only was it oh, so pretty-but it was delicious. It got me to thinking. How could I come up with a recipe that was elegant enough to serve for holiday entertaining, easy enough to make for my family on a busy weeknight and was affordable.

My husband and I love meatloaf and I already had some hamburger and sausage in the refrigerator. So, I decided that I was going to make Meatloaf Wellington.

I realize that this isn’t a great pic, but I wanted to have something to post.

The Ingredients

Ground Beef

Ground Sausage

A Scallion

A clove of Garlic

Salt and Pepper

Two Eggs

Puff Pastry

Olive Oil

I wish that I had some great pictures of how to make this great recipe, but my camera had a mind of it’s own the day that I made it. So, I will do my best to tell you how to make it without the pics and video.

Step 1: In a medium pan, on medium heat, add a drizzle of olive oil. By the way, I just found this olive oil and dispenser and I love it. Isn’t it great?

Step 2: Put the scallion and the clove of garlic (both peeled) into the food processor. Did you know that KitchenAid had a 13-Cup Food Processor with Dicing Kit? I didn’t either, but it looks pretty cool. I just might use my Christmas gift cards for it in the after Christmas sales.

Step 3: Add the chopped onion and garlic to the heated pan, cook until aromatic. I always use an olive wood spoon when cooking in a non stick pan. I greatly prefer them to the traditional wooden spoon-they are much smoother to the touch. I always wash them by hand-not in the dishwasher.

Step 4: In a large mixing bowl, add ground beef, ground sausage, scallion-garlic mix, salt and pepper, one egg and one egg yolk. Save the egg white for later. Mix well. Set aside.

Step 5: Sprinkle a bit of flour on a large rolling mat, roll out one roll of puff pastry to about 1/4 inch-of course, if you use a super cute rolling pin-the food definitely tastes better. Transfer the puff pastry onto a piece of waxed paper. Now, roll the second piece.

Step 6: Mound the meatloaf mixture onto one of the pieces of the puff pantry.

Step 7: In a small bowl, mix the egg white with a tablespoon of water and mix well. Using a pastry brush, brush the egg wash onto the edges of the puff pastry.

Step 8: Put the second piece of the puff pastry on top of the meatloaf. Cut off any extra puff pastry.

Step 9: Using two fingers of one hand and the thumb of the other hand, crimp the puff pastry, adhering them together.

Step 10: Place Meatloaf Wellington onto a lined baking sheet. Slice some holes in the top of the puff pastry , so that the hot steam can escape.

Step 11: Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes. Until golden brown,

Step 12: Enjoy!

This recipe is so good! My family loved it. To make it even more pretty, I decorated the vintage platter with fresh rosemary sprigs and sage.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
