Yet another stuff-ed meet lowph.
« on: June 17, 2017, 11:39:44 AM »





Since I can't play golf this weekend 'cuz of all the rain, I may as well hit the cullinary trail.



Doing this on the fly.


How much of everything ?    Dunno.




Ground pork (80/20 - 85/15 - not super-lean).

Chicken-kale Italian sausage, bulk or out of the casings (Publix makes this better 'n I can - your local shops may have similar, or why the hell not, go for makin' your own), or your fav 'normal' Italian type saw-seej.

Bacon - Go for it..... Get the mostest awesumnesser type you like or can find (pre cooked and chopped up some.).  Today, I'm using a hunk off a borboun-maple cured alder smoked slab.

Cheese..... Go for it..... For this one, I'm gonna use Kerrygold Dubliner soft wedges - it's like the Laughing Cow stuff, but a billion times much more gooderer.  You want a cheese or a combo of two that will melt.

Roasted garlic - If you think you're using too much, y'ain't usin' enough.   >:D

Fresh parsley - Chopped, chiffonade, minced, your call.

One egg, mixed thoroughly.  One egg.  Y'ain't makin' one o' them quickies..... um..... quiches.  One egg.

Fresh breadcrumbs you make yerdangself from croissants or brioche, maybe sourdough.  Whatever you got layin' 'round will work, but 99.99% of the store-bought stuff is 'meh' at best.

Juice and zest from a Meyer lemon.

Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning ..... This'n stuff is tons 'o flavor, but...... highly salty, ya don't need much.



Combine the meats, with garlic, some bread crumbs, lemon and the liquid chicken - that's 'egg' for those of you in Rio Linda.

In a separate bowl, combine the bacon, cheese and parsley.

Figure out your best way to stuff the meat mixture with the cheese..... center-mass, rolled, whatever works for ya.

Dust the big ol' honker with the creole seasoning - lightly.


Now the fun..... Got a smoker ?   Yeah, buddy.   225F/105C for a bit of time.   Leave it there the whole time, or 'for a while' and then finish in the oven, 'bout 350F/175C - center temp of the meat - not the temp of the cheese thing, 160F/70C on the meat and yer done.

Oven all the way, steady temp deal.   350F/175C.


Hint #1:   Dont you dare use a 'loaf pan' or anything that will contain the grease with the mixture as it's cookin'.  What that'll do is leave the bottom or worse, way up the sides of your dinner sittin' in goop.

Pretty sure I don't have to say this, but if you didn't know it, meat loaf isn't a solid piece of meat.  It creeps and leaps and glides and slides across the floor, right through the door and all around the wall, a splotch, a blotch..... There are great racks available that will hold a meat loaf above a drip tray without it endin' up lookin' like The Blob is comin' through your chain-link fence.


Hint #2:   Truthfully, pull it out of the over about 5 degrees before it's done - there's what's known as 'carryover' cooking.  It's been in an oven, for Pete's sake !     Pop the thing on a heat-proof surface and leave it on the rack in the drip pan and tent - don't wrap - tent loosely with aluminum foil and let it sit for at least 15 minutes.   Just because it's not a solid piece of meat, doesn't mean it doesn't need to 'rest' some for redistribution of wealth all the juices inside.



Want a gravy/sauce ?

Best way I've found to cook a meat loaf is on top of a broiling pan.  The slots let the fat drip thru while keeping the loaf high and dry.

Here is the truth:



Then they stuff us with all their 'goodies' so that we won't bicker about them too much!
