Iron Chef Mom: Meatloaf Challenge
Apparently... when I posted about my Alton Brown meatloaf a couple of weeks back.. my mom took it as a challenge. So she invited Dave and I over for a meatloaf throwdown.
Oh mommy dearest... please forgive me for my silly statement that Alton's meatloaf is better than yours... after all.. it had been about 15 years since I last tried your meatloaf... and I wonder how I forgot its meatloaf masterpieceness.
Ironically... after she told me her recipe.. it turns out it is almost EXACTLY like Altons. Great culinary minds must think alike. Although.. mom did some things I liked that Alton did not.. for instance, she left nice big chunks of carrot in her meatloaf.. which gave a nice texture... with some bites having little surprise crunchies stashed away to discover. However she doesnt glaze her meatloaf.... and I do believe if we took my mom's meatloaf.. and covered it with Alton's glaze... we would have .. THE MOST AWESOMEST MEATLOAF..... IN THE WORLD!!!!
Stay tuned... because I do intend to make said meatloaf.
