I meant to make this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe. I really did.
I made the onion marmalade:
I mixed the filling in the food processor:
I even took ground buffalo and sirloin out of the freezer and bought the hamburger buns.
But something happened when I went to make the burgers.
Yep, I made a meatloaf. I’m not sure why; I was just in the mood for meatloaf. The filling, with its tomatoes, capers, pickles, and herbs, seemed like a great base for a meatloaf. And the onion marmalade was perfect on top.
This was a great meatloaf. It held together well, and the flavor was outstanding. We enjoyed it for dinner the night it was made, and as sandwiches the next day.
Sometime I might make this recipe it as hamburgers. But I will definitely make it again as meatloaf.
