The Meatloaf Bakery Story

Meatloaf. It is the perfect comfort food, often bringing back memories of Mom’s cooking.  Luckily I had wonderful memories of my own mother’s cooking, especially her meatloaf.  But I took it one step further – turning the traditional ‘loaf’ into something much more creative and beautiful.  The meatloaf cupcake was born! Starting with her recipe, I created many more yummy variations, each topped with meatloaf’s beloved sidekick, mashed potatoes as well as pasta and even sautéed vegetables. 

In 2008, I opened up The Meatloaf Bakery™ in Chicago.  Our charming Lincoln Park storefront, along with our mobile food truck, Meatloaf-A-Go-Go®, and our Chicago French Market location, served Chicagoans and Windy City visitors for nearly seven years.  Endless varieties of meatloaf cupcakes, bite-size meatloaf Loafies®, and even full-size meatloaf pastries like cakes and pies, drew people from near and far.

With our scrumptious recipes we captured the attention of the national media [link to Our Media] on programs like the Food Network, the Cooking Channel and ABC’s the Chew.  And we were highlighted in many news articles and blog posts for our creative recipes including The Mother Loaf®, inspired by my mom; and the crowd favorite, No Buns About It Burger Loaf®. My personal favorites, A Wing And A Prayer Loaf®, a Buffalo wings-inspired recipe and Loaf-A-Roma®, also gained local and national applause – so much so that we were invited to write our first cookbook and appear on QVC multiple times. 

Today, we focus exclusively on bringing our delicious meatloaf to people across the country through Meatloaf By Mail™.  Whether you have fond memories of your mom’s cooking or want to create new memories once you’ve tasted ours, we can’t wait for you to try our delicious meatloaf cupcakes, and see for yourself why they’ve been featured on cooking programs and enjoyed by thousands of people.

With Meatloaf By Mail™ and our cookbook you’re never very far from our original, one-of-a-kind creations.
