Meatloaf Express

This is another one of my favorites that I learned to make here in Finland. This is so easy that I make this whenever. I hope you'll like it.
Difficulty: Easy

Mix together:

1 kilo of ground meat. ( you can use all chicken, or mixed with pork or beef)

1/4 cup raisins (optional)
1/2 cup of croutons
1 egg
1/2 cup milk

TIP: The amount of ground meat depends on the size of your baking tins. I need about 1.2 kilos for the moulds I am using.

This is a regular 60 gms pack of onion soup powder.
Pour it over the meatloaf mixture.

No need to add salt. Just a bit of pepper.

For some who couldn't use MSG (monosodium glutamate) use instead:
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper

I have 2 similar silicon moulds here.

I lined the other one with bacon slices.

The other one, I brushed with vegetable oil and dust it generously with bread crumbs.

Line the moulds with a thin layer of the meat mixture, and lay the 6 minute eggs.

Then cover it with the rest of the mixture.

Place in a 200 degs C pre heated oven for about 25 mins.

Turn the meat loaf over a baking paper on a tray...

... and put it back in the oven in 300 degs C for about 8 to 10 minutes

Or until golden brown. Watch it closely so it doesn't burn.

Power Scrambled Eggs

This is my favorite power breakfast!
Difficulty: Easy


1. a small sauce pan
2. a wooden spoon
3. 2 eggs separated
4. garlic infused oil (if not available, just crush 1 clove of garlic and let it heat up inside the pan with the oil for 2 mins. take it out before putting the eggs)
5. a tbsp. of chives or chopped basil or chopped dill.

1. Heat up the pan in medium high, and pour about 1 tbsp. of oil. Swirl it around at least halfway up on the sides of the pan. (to keep the eggs from sticking)

My stove temp is 1 to 9. Medium high for me is 7.

2. Pour in the egg whites first. Keep stirring the egg whites to prevent it from sticking to the bottom. When the whites are about to coagulate (runny but not liquid anymore) pour in the egg yolks.

3. Keep on stirring.

4. To gain a bit of fluffy texture, add about ½ tbsp. of butter. Keep stirring.

5. When the egg whites and yolks have been mixed, wait till the texture is crumbly but not stiff, then its ready. It has to be almost airy.

6. Topped with your favorite herbs, serve it with some tomatoes, and your favorite salad veggies, toast, or here, a freshly baked scone! Yum!!!
