Spent Grain Meatloaf
Yeah, it was worth it. I pretty much just substituted spent grains instead of breadcrumbs. It seems really wet when it's raw, but the grains absorb more than you think they will, so the danger is your meatloaf could get overly dry if you add too much. So have a decent sauce ready just in case. I'm going to give this another try as meatballs and see how it works with spaghetti.
1 - 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1/2 cup homebrew
1 cup spent grains, dried in oven and ground in food processor
1 onion, very finely minced
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 jar roasted red peppers, finely diced
1/2 cup tomato sauce
Herbs to taste (parsley, basil, whatever you like)
Salt and pepper
Another 1/2 cup tomato sauce
Combine everything but second 1/2 cup tomato sauce. Form a loaf on a silpat covered sheet pan and coat with remaining sauce. Bake at 375 until center is 165-170 (about 45 minutes).
