Beefy Meatloaf and a Cabbage Pie

Oct 16 2014

I decided I could do this meal in two steps; it would be easier on my bad leg. Wednesday it was nice enough I did the meatloaf on my Traeger; it would be good warmed up for tonight’s supper. Today I did the cabbage pie in cast iron in my oven; had some Bob Evan’s mashed potatoes and Heinz beefy gravy, some cold pickled beets all with bread and butter.

I found the cabbage pie recipe at Food52 by Kukla. A look at the ingredients said this should be delicious. Then I had a couple of goofs in assembling the pie. I had half the sour cream and mayo stirred in the cabbage and onions before I realized it was supposed to go in the batter mix. I thought I could use the rest in the batter and it should turn out ok anyway. I had the batter in over the cabbage and looked over to see the feta cheese still setting there! I had forgotten to add it over the cabbage before adding the last of the batter. I scraped off what I could get of the batter; added the cheese and then the batter back in. In the oven it went and hoped it turned out ok.

I thought the cabbage pie would be the star of tonight’s supper; mediocre at best. It looked nice and the batter was done right. I think it was the flavors of all that just didn’t work well together. My wife and daughter in law both said it was just OK. I don’t think my goofs hurt that much; I had all the ingredients in but just not in the right order.

I doubt if I try this again but if I do I would get the ingredients in the right order and change the cheese to Swiss. Whenever I think of a cheese to go with cabbage I think of Swiss.

I still got filled up good and did eat all the piece of cabbage pie I had. A link to the cabbage pie recipe is here in case anyone thinks they might like to try it.
