This of course got me to thinking... what is WRONG with meatloaf. It is hamburger, and egg and breadcrumbs. In our case I have topped it off with a ton of Barbeque sauce and baked it off until the edges are crisp and the inside is juicy. So far so good right? So where does meatloaf go wrong? Is it the school lunches that we all have suffered through as children? Is it the fact that there are soooo many other options of yummy things to do with ground meat? Or maybe... just maybe it is the name... Meatloaf. Shakespeare once wrote, "What's in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet." Does Shakespeare have it right?? Or, is the combination of "meat" and "loaf" so very off putting that people cannot get past it?
I have said before that my mind works in mysterious ways. Please excuse this evenings ramblings on dinner at the Rustay house... But I wonder, if meatloaf was called by another name, would it taste any better to the "loaf haters" of the world?
