I am not a fan of meatloaf simply because it always tastes best with the sauce and I’m not a fan of anything that has ketchup on it. I hate anything sweet and sour. It just tastes so wrong to me. Even its supposed aroma doesn’t smell good to me! So while I love meat, meatloaf is something that I never learned to love. The first time I ever tasted it was when Mom was trying the recipe recommended by a friend. She didn’t want to waste the meatloaf so we had to eat it. First taste and I did a form of escape, something that I had never done for food. Let’s just say I was hungry that night. And every night, when there’s meatloaf on the menu.
And then I tasted this. I’m now an adult so I feel more confident in tasting dishes that don’t fit my taste. This was a recipe found by a friend over at Southern Bite. The first question I asked was, “does it still have ketchup as its sauce?”. When she said yes, I was about to retreat. But then I smelled the aroma and decided to give it a try. Surprisingly, even with that hint of sweet and sour, I liked it. It smells so good and the sourness is not as overwhelming to the taste. Meatloaf is still not on my favorite list of food, but this particular recipe just took a place on it. Meatloaf lover or not—you have to try this!
