Keepin It Classy Meatloaf will give you quite the surprise after the first bite and again after the last. Read on for the simple secrets!
Meatloaf, shmeatloaf. C’mon we can do better than that! But wait a minute, sometimes I don’t want to do better than that because meatloaf (this meatloaf) has been a top comfort food request from my husband since we have been together. Just like the hamburger soup, I have been eating this since I was about 6 years old and guess what I don’t ever want to change a thing about it.
EXXXXCCCCCEEEEPT, I did. You wanna know why? I dried the meatloaf out on purpose so that it would stay together for the pictures and you may already be thinking, I can do meatloaf better than that. It looks dried out. Well it was, but I did that on purpose and I promise I will give you the actual real recipe! 😉 Because it’s 100% on top of this world. Does it look it? Probably not, because meatloaf isn’t very photogenic if you can’t already tell. That is the #1 reason I haven’t put it up on my blog. Meatloaf is just meatloaf. But then again it isn’t because we never have any left over to make meatloaf sandwiches the next day. Ugh, maybe someday…
Another reason I honestly haven’t put meatloaf on my blog is because I have this vision that I want to keep it classy. My husband has been telling me to put this recipe on here since well, I started blogging. And I just didn’t see meatloaf fitting in well.
It’s just nonsense. All of it is don’t ya think?! First I don’t want to post my meatloaf, then I make the dried out version so it stays together for pictures, then during editing my photos I am like hmmm looks dried out. However, the original Beef Mushroom Loaf recipe like it’s named in my recipe box is unbeatable and that’s why I am posting this today!! Just trying to help keep your home cooked meals rockin! And that my friends is why I am calling this Keepin It Classy Meatloaf just to make sure everyone now knows that this meatloaf is classy and fits in with the rest. 😉
Moooommmm, ca we get some meatloaf?!!! Ma, the meatloaf!!! -Wedding Crashers
I literally get this 100 times in the face from my husband when I make meatloaf and I still laugh every time I hear it!
