Polish Herbed Meatloaf or Klops Wolowy

This is just one version of Polish Meatloaf, or Klops.  Polish Meatloafs are often made with Beef, Pork or Veal, or combinations of these ground meats.  Klops Wolowy (pronounced Klohps Voh-Vo-Vih) means Beef Meatloaf.



Ingredients:

1 stale roll of Bread
Water
1/2 to 1 Onion, diced (depending on how much you like)
2 lbs. Ground Beef
1 Egg
1 Teaspoon Mustard
1 Bunch Fresh Chives or 2 1/2 Tablespoons Dried
1 Bunch Fresh Dill or 2 1/2 Tablespoons Dried
1 Bunch Fresh Curly Parsley or 2 1/2 Tablespoons Dried
Salt
Pepper
4 Tablespoons of Oil


Soak the Bread in Water for a few minutes until soft and squeeze out water.  Mix Bread with Onion, Beef, Egg, Mustard, Salt and Pepper (to taste). 




Coat Baking Pan with 2 Tablespoons of Oil.

Wash, Dry and Chop the Herbs, if using fresh.  In a wide baking dish, mix the Herbs (Chives, Dill, Curly Parsley). 




 Roll the Meat Mixture into a long roll shape and roll through the Herbs mixture.  Set on Baking Pan. 




Drizzle with Oil.  Add a couple of tablespoons of water to the bottom of the backing pan, if desired to create steam for dried herbs. Bake at 425 degrees for 45 minutes.



Slice and serve with mashed potatoes, Kasza Gryczana, or rice and a Vegetable Side, such as Fried Cabbage or Fried Carrots or other. 

Normally, I would post a picture of it plated but the family grabbed their plates too quickly, and let's face it, us Mamas have to wolf down our food while the kids are eating or else we can just wait until after bedtime and eat it cold and microwaved back to life...  Sufficed to say, it was Pyszne (pronounced Pih-sh-neh and meaning delicious)!

Smacznego!

Ha ha I know the problem, cook something tasty and there is no time left for pretty photos, because all vanishes at lightning speed :D

It really did! Too yummy... The kids ate it all and so fast, I am actually glad I didn't stop to take pictures of it done or else I would have gotten to finish mine in time before baths, stories, and bedtime, and then cleaning. And the leftovers were amazing as a sort of hamburger on bread, delicious...
