This is the last recipe of January's theme of the month- champagne. I'm kind of glad it's over because I've gotten a lot of questions about why I'm so obsessed with champagne. I'm not- it's just the theme of the month on my channel. Yet people on the Internet don't get the picture. It's stupid to be honest.
I'm not even going to mention certain trolls who have used expletives in their comments of my videos. Listen, if all you have to say to me is something negative, YOU WILL BE BLOCKED FROM COMMENTING EVER AGAIN ON MY CHANNEL!! I'm not tolerating that bullcrap on all the work I do anymore. Those all caps letters are on purpose, by the way.
Anyways, about the actual meatloaf. It reminded me of the matzo brie my mom used to make every Passover in that it tasted better with maple syrup on it and it was eggy on the edges(I didn't take photos of that but I probably should've) because I used a different type of tofu this time(not of my own free will, mind you. This is what happens when you let your dad go grocery shopping for you.). Also, I guess the sparkling white grape juice in the meatloaf wasn't sweet enough.
You might be wondering why I put olive oil in my crumbled up champagne bread this time. The bread at the time of filming was two weeks old and stale, so the only use for it was to grate the hard loaf against a cheese grater(which is really effective, by the way). The crumbs were still dry, so I figured putting some moisture and seasonings in it wouldn't hurt.
You will need:
For the cooking equipment:
A lasagna pan
Nonstick cooking spray
For the meatloaf:
2/3 tbsp. of onion powder
2 beaten and whisked eggs
1/2 cup of sparkling white grape juice or actual champagne
1 cup of "champagne" breadcrumbs
1 tbsp. of olive oil
Pinch of salt
Pinch of black pepper
12 ounces of chopped, drained extra firm tofu
Maple syrup to top the meatloaf when it's done(optional)
1. Put the onion powder, eggs, and sparkling white grape juice into a large bowl.
2. Put the "champagne" breadcrumbs in a small bowl. Pour the olive oil in, along a pinch of salt and black pepper. Mix together to distribute the oil and spices evenly among the breadcrumb mixture. Put the breadcrumb mixture into the large bowl.
3. Add the tofu to the large bowl.
4. Mix all the ingredients together until you get a firm, consistent mixture.
5. Spray a lasagna pan with nonstick cooking spray.
6. Form 2 loaves from the meatloaf mixture.
7. Bake in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 40-45 minutes.
8. Top with maple syrup for more flavor with your meatloaf(optional)
9. Bon appetit!
