Vintage Cauliflower Meatloaf Recipe

So I have been looking at vintage recipes on Pinterest.  I think some of them are so wacky but still interesting.  I ran across this special one. It looked easy and tasty and I really wanted to try it.

You can modify this recipe by using your favorite meatloaf recipe. Start by steaming the cauliflower for about 5 minutes. Place the cauliflower in a baking dish and allow to cool.Meanwhile,  prepare your meatloaf recipe.  I used onion, garlic, egg, bread crumbs, spices, and ketchup. Sautee the onions and garlic until brown and add all ingredients to your ground beef.

After the meatloaf is all mixed together, wrap around the cauliflower.

Bake for about 45 minutes until the meat is browned and cooked through.

This is great with some mashed potato or rice and salad.

Vintage Cauliflower Meatloaf

  • small cauliflower
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • spices
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 lb ground beef

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees. Cut all the leaves and remove stem from the cauliflower. Steam for about 5 minutes. Place in a baking dish and allow to cool.

To make the meatloaf, first chop up the onion and garlic.  Brown the onions and lightly cook the garlic.  In a large bowl, mix together the onion, garlic, egg, olive oil, bread crumbs, ketchup, salt and pepper and spices of your choice. I used Thyme.

Mold the meatloaf around the cauliflower and press well. Bake for about 45 minutes until the meatloaf is browned and cooked through.

Play around with different meatloaf recipes.

    This came from a recipe subscription called My Great Recipes that was available in the 1980s. You got a new packet of cards every month. We really liked most of what I made, and still make some to this day (I still have my cards, too).
