View Full Version : Bourbon Mushroom Meatloaf

11-09-2008, 12:52
My wife has started making me this new concoction which is an embellishment of one of my mother's old recipes. Standard meatloaf but with a layer of mozzarella cheese in the middle and instead of a tomato-based sauce on top, she sautees mushrooms in a bourbon reduction (using some reject bourbon and baby bella mushrooms) to make fantastic gravy. This is my new favorite culinary invention and elevates meatloaf from a comfort food into gourmet territory...I'm getting some tonight and thought I'd share my excitement.

Can you provide some more specifics on the recipe? I'm intrigued.

I'm intrigued, too, cough it up!

A little splash of bourbon to finish up some sauteed mushrooms is the shit.
Plenty of butter and a little bit of garlic and salt at the very end, half a shot of good bourbon (EC18 is horrible to cook with). Reduce, as alcohol fights with the subtle flavor of mushrooms.

I cut the mushrooms into big, thick slices, sometimes just in half. Too thin and they lose too much flavor.

Ah, mushrooms, I could live on 'em.
