Recipe: Country Kitchen’s meatloaf with special tomato glaze


From the menu… The Country Kitchen, 17800 U.S. 27, Pine Mountain. 706-663-2281. www.callawaygardens.com

[We] love the meatloaf at The Country Kitchen at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain. It has this amazing tomato glaze on top and is a lovely moist piece of meatloaf. It’s a long way to drive from Marietta almost to Columbus – just to eat this meatloaf! Could you convince the chef to share the recipe? Thank you! Lynn and Randy Phillips, Marietta

The Country Kitchen is the restaurant inside Callaway Gardens Country Store. Once spring hours kick in on March 11, the restaurant will be open for breakfast every day, lunch Sundays through Thursdays and then all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner on Fridays and Saturdays. The restaurant is known for its “down home Southern cooking” and beautiful views of Pine Mountain.

The meatloaf as it is made at The Country Kitchen calls for one particular ingredient only available in food service quantities — Uncle Ben’s Cornbread Stuffing Mix. We substituted widely available Stove Top Cornbread Stuffing Mix to delicious results.

It's where I was born, and while I wasn't raised here, it's where I spent the bulk of my childhood vacations chowing down on gooey butter cake with grandparents and feeding goats at Grant's Farm with cousins. It's also a place I've learned to appreciate, in its own right, as an adult. Last year, I visited five times...

Saute, roast, grill shishito peppers. (Don’t worry about seeds)

A: It’s not necessary. While the seeds of chili peppers may contain some heat, it’s the inner ribs of peppers that contain the fiery spice. The beauty of shishito peppers, which seem to be gaining popularity in recent years, is they are relatively mild. Raw shishito peppers have a hint of sweetness, and a crisp texture that similar to a...

The nut coating provides a crunchy texture, which...

Is cheese on apple pie just right or just wrong? The ‘dessert’ is dividing the Midwest

Everything is better with cheddar, right? You know, like burgers, grilled cheeses and nachos. But how is cheddar with a good ol’ slice of American apple pie? Apparently, that’s how some Midwesteners enjoy their pie — because why top it with vanilla ice cream when you can have cheese? Last week, Wichita country radio station host JJ...
