I created a vegetarian meatloaf a bit ago on the blog. I loved the meatloaf and so did Joe! It was hearty, resembled the texture of regular ground beef, and held together like a gem. Only thing is, the pictures were just so-so. I was learning how to use the daylight to my advantage with my camera and the pictures really didn’t do the “meat” loaf any justice. Not only that, but I had a hankering for something hearty this week and wanted to make the vegetarian meatloaf again. I looked back at the recipe and figured, I could alter it a bit to what ingredients I had on hand. Instead of using bread crumbs for the loaf, I used oats and it was an awesome substitution. Instead of using walnuts, I had raw cashews on hand, and that was again, another awesome substitution.
Have you ever made a recipe that you made a second time around where you kinda wanted to be daring and mix it up a bit?
What kind of substitutions have you made in a recipe?
Any that didn’t go your way? (There have been plenty in my book!)
