“The secret ingredient is always love.”
Comfort Food at Its Finest
When I was growing up, my Uncle Buddy lived with us. My mother started teaching me to cook when I was 10 years old, and after mastering the basics, I loved trying new things. For Buddy’s birthday one year, I offered to cook him anything he wanted no matter how fancy. He smiled and asked for meatloaf. I was shocked and tried to talk him into something else, but he knew that fancy doesn’t always mean delicious. There’s nothing quite like a simple meal prepared well.
Most traditional meatloaf recipes include egg and bread crumbs. Eggs are meant to hold it together, and the bread crumbs are meant to improve the texture. (A meatloaf with nothing but meat tends to be hard as a rock.) For this Paleo AIP recipe, I did some experimenting and it turns out that shredded vegetables serve both purposes. The end result is the best-tasting meatloaf I’ve ever had!
