EASY CHEESY DELICIOUS MEATLOAF
My mother reads my blog (I think), so I'm going to apologize in advance for what I'm about to say. I'll start by saying that I love my mom's spaghetti and meatballs, her turkey, and her chicken pot pie. She makes a lot of delicious food, but I hate her meatloaf. I'm sorry mom, but I think you kinda know this already. Something about a loaf of meat was just a turn off to me, and there was some squished up bread in it which skeeved me out. I know there were some Italian spices, but overall it was just not my thing. It's not just her meatloaf, anytime I had it at a restaurant or someone else's house- I just didn't enjoy it. So after high school I delighted in the fact that I would never have to have meatloaf again.
In a twist that only this life could dole out, bf happens to love meatloaf. It's his favorite, in his mind it should be in the weekly rotation. So, if meatloaf loving bf and I were going to dine in cohabitory bliss, I would need to figure something out. So, I scoured the interwebs for a good recipe. I tried several, and finally I took all the aspects of each that I did like and combined them and got rid of everything I hated (I'm looking at you squishy bread). The result? A cheesy, delicious, explosion of flavor that takes mere minutes to put together. I can honestly say I love it. This is not your mother's (or my mother's) meatloaf. This is your punk loving, pink hair, rule breaking yet everyone loves her cousin's meatloaf (I don't have one of those but if I did I think this is what she would make). Read on for the recipe and enjoy!
