Reviewed Yes, Virginia There is a Great Meatloaf

Mar 30, 2014 in null on Food.com

I';m not a fan of meatloaf but this was very good. The only thing I';d do differently would be to free form the loaf and cook it on a rack so the juices/fat could drain off while cooking. It was definitely juicy!"

My Mom, not to mention most southern cooks, would laugh at the notion of frying two pieces of chicken at a time. A family of 6 would be starving. Has she ever met a cast iron skillet? And what's with the cold waffles? I generally love Giada but this episode was hogwash.

Meh. Not very authentic.

Try using Swiss cheese instead or cheddar and adding some chopped ham. A totally different recipe but very yummy."

Nothing special. Flouring the chicken made for lousy skin texture and the overall flavor was bland. Threw the recipe in the trash. Sorry Ina. Not your best recipe. "

Wonderful. I added the sauce midway through cooking so the bacon could crisp. I also broiled it on the middle shelf the last 5 minutes for extra crunch. I may try it with sprouts next time. This is a keeper."

Easy and very tasty. Great for a quick supper and the leftovers make a great wrap for lunch the next day. I wouldn't change a thing.""

I found this soup very bland. The proportions of garlic and ginger in the recipe appear to be half of what he used on TV. I added some garam masala to pump up the flavor and it helped to a degree. I reheated it today hoping it would have improved, but no luck there. This one isn't a keeper."

I make a similar dip but use swiss cheese. It is always a favorite at parties."

Of course it is salty. Three tablespoons is a lot of salt. Just decrease it to taste as the asterisk implies. She's also using huge steaks.
