I'm very prone to turning food puns into meatloaf recipes, in case you haven't learned by now!
So when my dad bought one of those fun-size candy bags for Halloween last month, the majority of said candies were Whoppers candy. I figured, "well, there is such a thing as the BK Whopper Burger, so why not combine all the components of that burger with Whoppers candy to form one meatloaf!?"
Did you know when you melt a Whopper candy, the melted chocolate tastes like chocolate milk? I didn't know that until I tasted the meatloaf. This is the first time I used lettuce in a meatloaf, and it turns out lettuce wilts in the oven and then turns crunchy, exactly like the lettuce in a Whopper burger!
My dad tried a piece of the meatloaf without the Whoppers and he said something along the lines of "...as you get closer to the balls", which is wrong on SO many levels! I had to apologize to you guys about the impromptu sexual innuendo, and in the video, I found my dad guilty of innuendo!
Ironically, my dad hates sexual humor and he said he walked into that comment because of this recipe(f that's the correct phrasing). But it was funny! I thought about turning my dad's comment into a meme, but I don't want to expose him to harsh Internet comments. The online notoriety for him in that case isn't worth the hassle.
