Well, foolish me.I had a brief but happy flirtation with meatloaf following a rainy day viewing of The Amazing Spider-Man a couple years back (remember Aunt May’s meatloaf?) but that eventually trailed from consciousness.
Fast forward to December 17, 2013 and everything changed when I came across this post from my friend Amy.
Amy’s meatloaf (or perhaps I should say her Mom’s meatloaf) was greeted with such overwhelming affection by our family that I actually served it for Christmas dinner! Yup, it’s that good. And I’ve been making a version of it weekly ever since.This meal represents the perfect combination of low fuss, amazing flavour, and satisfying comfort that we all crave this time of year. It’s a protein rich delight that is sweet and spicy on the outside while being gorgeously moist and tender on the inside. And it all happens in the oven. Effortless. Working parents will love the convenience of this loaf on weeknights (you can prep it all the night before too) but trust me, it’s good enough to serve for any occasion — you will not be disappointed.The Sriracha sauce adds some heat but it is by no means overwhelming. If heat is not your thing, simply skip it.
