POPCORN MEATLOAF? Cooking🥣 and popping🌽 in Aunt GG's Kitchen.
Welcome everyone and our guest "off the street" person with a recipe.
Here we go. . . So, person . . . I do not know at all?? What do you have for us?
Well first off . . . did you know colonial housewives' poured milk or cream and sugar over popcorn and ate it like cereal?
No, I did not know that or want to try it for that matter . . .
I also have a semi- family recipe that was used during WW II, to stretch limited meat and food supplies. There were many ways families tried to make a meal go farther with as much protein as possible . . . But there was a war on, and everyone was doing the best they could to help. Here is a recipe where popcorn helped that need.
1 1/2 lbs. of ground meat(s)
1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
1 cup of ground popcorn plain
1 small onion, chopped
1 beaten egg
Combine all ingredients. Bake in a moderate (325') oven for one hour. Serve with tomato sauce or ketchup. Can be made into hamburgers also.
Sounds interesting . . . But at the same time, it is not a bad idea to use ground popcorn as a substitute instead of breadcrumbs.
1 cup of breadcrumbs has about 14 grams of protein.
Where 1 cup of ground popcorn has over 24 grams of protein. Almost double the protein per cup . . .
Thank you, person . . . "I do not know" for the history lesson and recipe . . .
You're welcome, Aunt GG . . .
Till next time . . .
You're just not happy . . . unless you've had happy valley popcorn
