I accomplished something great today -- I concocted a dish that the grandkids LOVED ... and which contains a respectable quantity of liver! :-D
This combination has been on my mind for some time, and I was delighted to find it actually WORKED. How often do we have "brilliant" ideas that just don't pan out?! Well, at least I do....
I combined pretty homogenously:
1# ground beef
1# ground pork
1# bacon, cut in 1" pieces
1/2# beef liver, soaked in milk, parboiled and chopped fine
1/2 c. barbecue sauce
It made quite a good-sized meatloaf in a large baking pan. I covered it with foil so it would stay moist while it had time to cook through, and I put it in a 350 F oven for an hour and a half. At the end of that time, I uncovered it and drizzled it with some of my home-made catsup and put it back in the oven for a half hour.
The children, 7 and 10, LOVED it. M polished hers off in record time, and G had seconds. My daughter said she thought it was the best meatloaf she'd ever tasted, though I reminded her that it was very much like the one I used to make, way-back-when -- just more nutritious.
Success! And success feels GOOD.
