“Meatzza” from “Nigellissima”

Want to try the Meatzza yourself? The recipe can be found on the Nigella Lawson website by clicking through on this link.

Maureen: So I think this is like a meatloaf, but in the shape of a pizza. What do you think?

Nicholas (9): Is this from the new cookbook?

Maureen: Yes. Nigella’s latest tome, which is all Italian cooking. I think we will enjoy this month.

Andrew (Now 13! Happy Birthday!): It’s OK. These are two things that don’t need to go together. They work fine together, but I don’t see the point. Either have pizza or have meatloaf. Why make it one thing?

Nicholas: I think it’s AMAZING. It’s like a meatloaf, but with the added tomato sauce and cheese on top. Delicious.

Maureen: I’m with Nicholas on this one. I think it’s good, and I suspect that I will make it again.

Andrew: Don’t get me wrong. It’s good, but it’s not my favourite.

Maureen: I don’t know, with time it might become your favourite.

Andrew: Nah.

Tim: I’m with Andrew on this one. I don’t see the point of this.

Maureen: What do you mean? It’s not meatloaf, it’s not pizza: It’s meatzza!

Tim: Nope. Not buying it.

Maureen: A house divided on the Meatzza. Controversial.

“Botham Burger” from “The Return of the Naked Chef”

Andrew (12): Nom, nom, nom.

Maureen: That’s your new favourite saying, isn’t it?

Andrew: It’s a great word to use when you’re eating something good.

Maureen: Like this?

Andrew: Like this. These are really good burgers.

Nicholas (8): Yes, I think so too.

Maureen: I liked them because they were easy. I could get them all made, with Nicholas helping, in no time at all. I also liked them better than “The Family Meal” burgers because it had more interesting spices added, whereas the other ones were just mince.

Andrew: Were the crisps part of the recipe?

Maureen: Unlike in The Family Meal, no. I just added them in because I knew you would like them.

Nicholas: We do like them, thanks.
