Reviews for Wild Rice Meat Loaf
"I made this tonight and it was really good. I used half the wild rice (that's all I had) and it still turned out just fine. My son asked how it would taste if it was made with white rice and I said that would be good too!"
"This was great! I had wildrice cooked with carrot and onion left over and was looking for a creative way to use it up, about 3 cups which worked out great. I sauteed shallot and onion instead of using raw onion as called for, totalling about 1/3 cup in butter and added the salt, pepper and sage as called for in the recipe to that to infuse the flavor. I used Panko breadcrumbs and about 1/3 cup flour instead of the 1/2 cup as called for. Last 15 minutes of baking I glazed with a simple ketchup and brown sugar mix. Best meatloaf ever. Fantastic!!"
"Next time half the rice, cheese, flour and sage. Great recipe!"
"We have this meat loaf for a family meal on a cold night. We use twice the meat, half the wild rice, and half the flour for two loaves. The 2nd loaf is refrigerated; then sliced and "fried" for the next day. We think it tastes even better as 'fried leftovers' the next day."
