This is comfort food at it's best. My husband was going to be late tonight so I immediately perked up and offered to make dinner. I hung up the phone and felt a strange sort of panic. All the other things I had planned to do tonight started racing through my head. I'm not good at winging it when it comes to food, I need a lot of preparation. Then I remembered the Red Apron and my worries vanished. I picked up a marvelous gourmet meatloaf (Berkshire pork, “Kerr” beef and Ontario lamb) with pan sauce, sweet and white potato mash. This lovely meal was $15 for 2.
My eyes were a little bigger than my stomach and I thought it would be a good idea to make a French onion soup with the leftovers from our weekend fondue – to have before our main. Well, by the time I got to the meatloaf I was already stuffed. It didn't stop me tho. I finished every bite, and it was delicious. The soup actually turned out fabulous too! I cut up some whole wheat bread into cubes and filled the soup bowl half way. After heating the leftover fondue broth I poured it into the soup bowls and then topped it with thinly sliced Quebec cheese. We don't have oven-safe bowls so I just put them in the microwave to melt the cheese. Aside from not having the yummy crusty cheese on the edges, it turned out perfect.
