4 Bites of Conversation So Far

  1. I’ve been adding mushrooms to our ground meat for about 6 months now! My “picky” kid prefers the new version of our meatloaf recipe to the one I was making without mushrooms!

    Here’s the recipe:

  2. For a pound of ground beef, I put 3 large cremini or white button mushrooms in a food processor and pulse a few times so I can hide them in my marinara sauce from the grandsons who think they don’t like mushrooms. After pulsing them, I add them to the skillet with onions, carrots, and, celery that has already cooked a bit, then add and brown the beef followed by the sauce. The boys think I make the best sauce of any cooks in the family – and what they don’t know helps them :).

    • Great idea! I bet you could sneak in even more mushrooms without their noticing…one more each time…. It’s amazing what can be hidden in marinara and may even enhance the flavor–on this day 7 years ago, I made marinara with a turnip in it, and it added a surprising sweetness!
