I like to experiment with ingredient substitutes… mostly because I’m too lazy to run to the store when I have to pack up children to do so. Its hard enough to do all my prep-work with an 8 month old strapped to my front in a carry sling.
Sometimes substitutes are great and sometimes they just don’t work out (like my Milk, Heavy Cream, Half-n-half Debacle).
I didn’t have the time to take pics or blog about my meatloaf adventure a few days ago. I had some ground turkey I needed to use, so I decided on a meatloaf. I made up the recipe as I went. I added chopped tomatoes and onions and thyme for a pretty bright and lively taste.
However, I had nothing to use for the bread component of meatloaf. No bread, no crackers, what is an adventurous and lazy chef to do? Well, as it turns out, my wife’s Special K worked just dandy.
Any Interesting substitutes in your week?
