The Meatloaf




I don't think I'll ever eat meatloaf again without thinking of this scene from Wedding Crashers. It's one of my favorite movie scenes and always makes me laugh out loud. So when I made meatloaf last week, this definitely came to mind. I used this recipe for Italian Meatloaf with ground turkey and it tasted like an enormous meatball. It was exceptional. The best part about making meatloaf is using the leftovers to make meatloaf sandwiches the next night. Delicious!

hahahaha gosh, Will Ferrel.

Meatloaf will always remind me of my grandma when she would make it and we'd wash our hands, she take off her rings and off we went diving into the bowl. Such good times.

Marcie said...

Yum! I love meatloaf. We had it a lot as kids, and your recipe looks great. I love leftovers too. It is so nice to make enough of one meal so that you can enjoy it the next night (especially on workdays!).

That clip is hilarious! I love that movie.

ps- did you get to wear the mustard tights this weekend?

Anna said...

that looks delicious! so much better than the traditional meatloaf recipe. i could handle eating this. regular meatloaf kinda freaks me out a bit for some reason! loving following your blog.

Gabriel said...

Mom, Meatloaf! Will Farrell is hilarious, and this meatloaf really is awesome! How could you not love a huge meatball?

Torrie said...

So funny. I love that scene.

And I love meatloaf as well! My cousin (who is an amazing cook- blogging about her tomorrow:) has 2 favorites- Bobby's w/ balsamic vinegar, and Tyler's w/ bacon on top. I've made them both and they are both incredible. I love Michael Chiarello and I'm sure his excellent as well. This will definitely be the next one that I try:).

Josie said...

Oh, I do love Wedding Crashers. This looks so tasty, Valerie -- and aren't meatloaf sandwiches with leftovers just the best? Yummmm.

Will Ferrell is so crazy! I love it!! hahahaha

Valerie - I had to laugh when I opened the email (aside from WF) - the Chef and I totally had turkey meatloaf on Friday (and Saturday night). It was sooooooo good!! We didn't do sandwiches the next night though....great idea. We totally need to do that next time. mmmmmmmeatloaf

Hope you had a great weekend,
Carrie

That meatloaf looks yummo... and I love that movie.. that part is fantastic.. Ma!! We want it now!! Love it! I wish my kids liked meatloaf..

Sidewalk Chalk said...

That actually looks pretty delicious. I guess I have these deep-seated notions of how I think meatloaf is because of the horrible variation back in the grade school cafeteria. This though looks like a piece of art.

I love that scene in the movie!

melissa said...

Hahaha. I love that part of the movie. I'm always hollering to my husband from the other room - "F- mom, the meatloaf!"

I have to tell you, I HATE meatloaf. Like, gag over meatloaf. But, and I cannot believe I am saying this, that looks good! I love peppers and onions and using turkey instead of beef sounds delish.

Jess said...

Oh yum - meatloaf made out of ground turkey. I'm going to have to try this one!

Anna Jane said...

i LOVE meatloaf...there's no shame in it :) yours looks good and i definitely want to try it since it's made with turkey!

xx anna jane

Leave it to Will Farrell to do that

Elle Sees said...

my mom makes the BEST meatloaf. I know everyone says that, but it's because she uses the same recipes for her meatballs.
