Market Street Meat Loaf

Nancy R


This recipe is not mine, but I have made it 1/2 dozen times. It is from the new Basics Cookbook. Original recipe from Tony Bill, and Chef Leonard Schwartz of 72 Market Street in Venice, CA.

I thought I hated meat loaf until I made this. It is out of this World. The "Today's Show" flew in Craig Claiborne to make this dish on the show.

How to Make Market Street Meat Loaf


  • 1Melt butter in a skillet, cook all veggies until soft. Remove to a bowl and place in the fridge for a hour. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • 2Combine the remaining spices, eggs, ketchup, and 1/2 & 1/2 in a bowl. Mix well. Add both of the meats and knead until well combined. Add chilled veggies and mix again.
  • 3In a 9x13" pan shape meat loaf in to an oval, 17x4 1/2x 1 " high. Put this a larger pan and fill half way with boiling water. Bake at 375 for 35 to 40 minutes.
    Let rest 20 minutes before serving. Enjoy. I will never make another meat loaf again.
