Mushroom Stuffed Meatloaf

Here's a meatloaf all gussied up for company.
It has a hint of thyme in it which gives it a wonderful flavour.
I'm afraid I can't give credit to the cook but it is found in the yellow Greendale cookbook.

  • 2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms or 1 can mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 cups fresh bread cubes
  • 1/4 teaspoon.thyme
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or 1 tsp. dried parsley
For the meatloaf;
  • 2 pounds hamburger
  • 2 eggs slightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/8 teaspoons pepper
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup mushroom or chicken broth
For the topping:
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1tablespoon dry mustard
  1. Make the stuffing first. Saute mushrooms and onions in the butter until soft.
  2. Combine with bread cubes, thyme and parsely.
