cereal water meatloaf
I noticed a month or two ago a picture on Instagram of somebody with ice cubes and water in a bowl of cereal, which got my creative juices flowing to make the no-bake meatloaf. It's late August and my A/C in the kitchen is mediocre at best. When I make my videos, I have to turn the A/C off to improve the audio quality for my videos because the A/C makes noise.
I found a safe egg substitute in the form of unsweetened applesauce. The rule of thumb is: 1 egg = 1/3 cups unsweetened applesauce. To me, unsweetened applesauce tastes sweet, which is weird. I could eat that applesauce out of the jar if I had the applesauce munchies!
Not surprisingly, the meatloaf turned out cold, watery and bland, so you might want to have something crunchy to go along with this meatloaf, like cereal. At least the marshmallows made some of the meatloaf tolerable at best.
I didn't use sauteed onions because refrigerating them only overpowers the cereal flavor of the meatloaf.
You will need:
For the cooking vessels:
Just a lasagna pan
For the actual meatloaf:
2/3 cups of unsweetened applesauce
1 cup of cereal(I used Lucky Charms cereal, as the picture on Instagram used Lucky Charms)
1 pound of chopped, drained, firm tofu
Pinch of salt
5-6 ice cubes
1. Wash your hands! :)
2. Put the first four ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Mix the ingredients up, like with your hands.
4. Form 2 loaves in a lasagna pan(you don't need nonstick cooking spray for this recipe)
5. Put the ice cubes inside the loaves.
6. Put the loaves in the refrigerator for an hour to let the ice melt and for the meatloaf to set.
7. If there are any solid ice cubes left at the time of serving, remove them from the meatloaf before eating.
8. Bon appetit!

It was based off an Instagram food trend last summer of people putting ice cubes in bowls of cereal, in place of milk. This recipe was an experiment.
