Meatloaf Made Magic

I don't care what anyone says; meatloaf is good.

I know, okay? I know what the cartoons and all that have always said about meatloaf: that it's a gross blob of meat baked into a dry lump of sadness.

But that's only because they weren't eating my mom's meatloaf. This stuff is good. It's moist, savory, super satisfying, and makes the absolute best sandwiches when you save it for leftovers the next day. It's quick to prepare, and while it cooks in the oven, you're able to do all kinds of other stuff (like clean the kitchen or start on whatever sides you'd like, like mashed potatoes). It's also got enough ingredients in it to make it a canvas for all kinds of magic.

Namely, with ingredients like parsley, tomato, Worcestershire sauce, and paprika, it can be used for strengthening bonds between lovers over a hearty and nutritious meal.

Now, this dish has a lot of potential for fostering love and domestic bliss. If you're looking to deepen a relationship that you want to stick around, one that you want to start getting to root and bloom into the partnership that creates a beautiful everyday life, then this is it. The parsley and paprika, the anchovy in the Worcestershire sauce, and the tomato in the sauce that goes on top, all combine into something delicious, with the curry powder adding a little of those warming spices (turmeric, ginger), too.

I know; you'd never think of meatloaf as a dish for a date night, or love, or anything like that. But take a peek at the ingredients, and you'll see it's a recipe for success in a relationship: the emotional connection of water and beauty of Venus frontloaded, the communication brought by Mercury and the mental aspect of air, the passion and fun and joy brought by Mars and fire. And it's a classic cozy recipe, meaning it's less about the Special Date Moments and more about crafting that everyday, cozy, stable foundation of a home.


Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 60 minutes

Makes 6-8 Servings


  • 2lb ground beef

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 egg

  • 1 cup breadcrumbs

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp mustard seed

  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 Tbsp curry powder

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Add your beef into a bowl.

  3. Chop your onion & garlic, then add to beef.

  4. Add your egg, seasonings, & bread crumbs, then mix until well combined.

  5. Take a baking tray, line it with parchment, and create two loaves of the meat mixture.

  6. Top with tomato sauce, making sure to cover the whole meatloaf, and bake for 60min.

  7. Remove, let cool, slice, and serve alongside mashed potatoes & veggies!

Don't knock a good meatloaf until you try it! I love making this when I have a lot of beef that needs to be used up, or when I want something savory and filling without spending a thousand years in the kitchen. It's a great dish that lets you get your kitchen fixed up before you eat—my favorite kind of dish!
