What is better than meatloaf? Meatloaf sandwiches the next day?
My family loves meatloaf, I love meatloaf… what is not to like? Meat, ketchup…. okay I know some people don’t like ketchup so use BBQ sauce. I don’t make fancy meatloaf with cheese in it or bbq sauce. I have tried different recipes but the kids always wants this meatloaf.
Now with meatloaf there are tons of things you can use as a filler. I use breadcrumbs and will always use breadcrumbs (or hot dog bun crumbs) it’s what I like. Now I have heard of people using oatmeal, crackers, stale cereal…. and many other things. Use what you want, but know it does change the texture and flavor. I normally use white bread but we once had some potato buns left over and I used them, I could totally tell a difference.
So if you are like me you don’t make many breads unless it’s banana bread because hey those soft bananas are calling to be baked! So when one of the gals at work gave me 2 GIANT zucchini I decided to make bread. I looked online for recipes and found a lot, but I didn’t feel like any of them were right. So I did what I always do when I can’t find a recipe I want to use, I call mom.
She had already told me she had a really good recipe, so I gave her a call. She dug out her 100 year old recipe (as she says) and gave it to me over the phone. Now let’s address these giant zucchini, I got 6 cups of shredded zucchini out of one. So I realized fast I had more than I needed for one batch. So I made enough for the neighbors, don’t you wish I was your neighbor?
