Sean started a new job this week (exciting!!) and that merited a victory dinner of his choosing. Of course, he chose the thing I find most disgusting to make: meatloaf. I decided to give Bon Appetit's chipotle meatloaf a shot, with two variations: I left out the chopped peppers and didn't use fresh herbs.
First things first, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, combine the meat of your choosing (I used a pre-mix of beef, pork and veal), chopped bacon, onions, celery, carrots, thyme, cilantro, rosemary, salt, pepper, heavy cream, 3 eggs and panko bread crumbs. Plunge your hands into that toxic mess and mush it all together until it somewhat resembles cat food or pate.
While the meatloaf cooked, I mixed some leftover adobo sauce that I saved from a can of chipotle peppers a while back with several squirts of ketchup until I had the right balance of spicy-sweet tang.
