As I prepare my stomach for Saturday’s Loaf Off, a meatloaf cooking competition I’ll help judge, I can’t get meatloaf off my mind.
It’s a divisive dish. Some people love it. The rest of them loathe it. I fall into the “love it” category.
Serving meatloaf in restaurants has become a bit of a trendy thing over the past decade or so. One of my favorites in town is the sorta spicy Persimmon Hill meatloaf served at Redrock Canyon Grill, 1844 N. Rock Road. Oh, my, it’s yummy.
Granite City has a good one, too, and several local diner-y places often have it as a blue plate special.
