So you've had meatloaf...
« on: September 04, 2014, 11:45:53 pm »
But have you ever had...  MEAT MUFFINS?

I didn't realize how gross this looked until i took this picture.



Fortunately it looks slightly less disgusting on a plate.



As an aside, I always thought that meatloaf was, like, the pinnacle of American food.  It is, after all, just a bunch of beef shoved together with some ketchup on top and some chopped veggies if you're feeling adventurous.

As it turns out, meatloaf wasn't really around America much until the 19th century, and other countries do it better than American meatloaf.

Maybe I'm a little biased because I've always found meatloaf to be kind of plain, but a lot ofother countries stuff their meatloaf with boiled eggs or weinerwurst or other such things.  It's also wrapped in ham and cheese in some places.  It kind of changes from country to country what the meatloaf standard is.

I am a big fan of tiny meatloaf options! Here's some I made a while back:

Are you sure you aren't just comparing your mother's meatloaf to meatloaf you've had other places? The boiled egg thing sounds disgusting (so does weinerwurst, for that matter) but I've seen it wrapped in bacon and ham. No cheese though... I'm not really sure how you would bake it with cheese around it. I've seen recipes with shredded cheese IN the meatloaf, though, as well as various other things.

Every meatloaf I've ever had in America is the beef +spices+onions+ketchup kind.  However, I don't really like that, so i don't meatloaf very often.

Wow that looks a lot better than my muffins  :lulz:.

Ground turkey, spices, egg, and breadcrumbs. You mash some of the meat into the little plastic cup, stuff it with whatever, then seal it up with more meat and flip it on the tray. Bakes in about 30 min.

Possible fillers include: various cheeses, cooked onions, peppers, garlic, spinach, bacon...

That sounds damn fine. Damn, damn fine.

That sounds nasty. I think that quite possibly part of the problem is that a lot of people who make meatloaf are shitty cooks.

Good meatloaf is delectable. My main recipe contains beef, pork, lamb, bread crumbs, egg, oatmeal, sauteed onions, mushrooms, garlic, and celery, red bell peppers, crushed tomatoes, salt and pepper, various herbs, and is topped with a homemade tomato glaze. Variations on this recipe  mutate as desired.

I mean, if your basic recipe is good, any embellishments are just accessories. If your basic recipe is bad, nothing you stuff it with is going to save it.

I think the key mistake a lot of people make is just taking a lump of ground beef and mashing it into a loaf pan. Breadcrumbs or some kind of flour are mandatory.

Yeah, baked ground beef and ketchup do not a meatloaf make. Ick.

It's sodium Valhalla, but I use Stove Top stuffing in mine. It's fucking good. Also, I use HP sauce to top it, not ketchup.
