More Bang for Your Buck at The Meatloaf Bakery

_dscf7701_sm-150x150.jpg"Meatloaf" and "bakery" aren't two words typically found in proximity to each other, at least not in my world. Who'd ever have thought you could consume an entire meal by devouring a cupcake (or as they're referred to at The Meatloaf Bakery, "loafies"). True, savory cupcakes have been on the rise for some time now, but this takes the concept to a whole new level. With the "cake" portion comprised of well, meat, and the "frosting" typically some variation of whipped potatoes or spaghetti, these meatloaf cuppers are sure to fulfill your meat and potatoes craving.

(Pictured - The Omega-3 loaf; Wild caught Alaskan salmon; rich and fluffy with a hint of lemon, parsley and dill. Topped with wasabi mashed potatoes and served with fresh lemon-dill yogurt sauce.)
The Meatloaf Bakery is located in Lincoln Park at 2464 N Clark St Chicago, IL 60614. 773-698-6667.
