Cooking with Octavia Spencer
In Hidden Figures (in theaters now), Oscar-winner Spencer plays a brilliant mathematician at NASA. So it’s only fitting that she gave our meat loaf her own genius spin.
The Challenge: Cheeseburger Meat Loaf
"I love Southern comfort foods: collards, cornbread, black-eyed peas, lima beans and sweet potatoes."
"I modified the recipe to make individual meat loaves in a muffin pan. They should freeze well, which will be great when I return to the sanctuary that is my home after being on the road"
"The funniest moment was when I set off my smoke alarm—I mean a full-on BEEP, BEEP, BEEP, and then a voice repeats FIRE, FIRE, FIRE. At least I know it works!"
"I feel like I finished a crazy marathon and have come out the victor. I can't wait to dig in to my first cheeseburger meat loaf! Thanks, Rachael!"
