I'm somewhat Irish, so you had me at somewhat-potatoes.
Fake potatoes are better than almost anything real.
I also am with @OBSHOP . I can't wait to try the honey jiffy mix.
But I also love using the fried onions in meatloaf or eating them as snacks.....lol.
@jlhersback @Rickibotta I need ALL of the information on this revolutionary (to me) French-fried-onion-in-meatloaf situation. Does it effectively replace the oats/breadcrumb/panko/etc. component of the recipe? Or is it a combo of those dry ingredients? Or is it a flavor bomb that just gets tossed in as an added bonus??? Do ya sprinkle any on top for crunch????
I am a 'whatever floats your boat' sort of cook, so I could see adding to the top towards the end of cooking if you add other condiments for flavor.
But I started using it in the main mixture along with stuffing a while back. I do it sometimes.
I like to have different types of meatloaves; sometimes with cheese, sometimes with cheese and ham in the middle,
That is the great thing about meatloaf. The most important thing is to use things you love and it almost cant go wrong.
I always use red peppers. And I always use ketchup, mustard, hot sauce. And grated parmesan cheese for a few minutes.
Sometimes I use half ground beef and half hot Italian sausage.
Sometimes 'I use corn chips instead of breadcrumbs or pank
Sometimes I use eggs and sometimes I just don't.
I never use tomato paste. To me it tastes cheap like what you find at a buffet. But that is just me.
The spices even vary from time to time.......lol. So it is always a game-time decision for me.
