Has ayone ever eaten or tried to make this idea that's rumbling round in my head as I come near the end of a waaaay too long meatloaf making project?: i'd like to make something in the way of a masa cake or a fried cornbread (it's a VA thing I grew up with; white cornmeal patty fried) that has a creamy ground meat mixture in the center. kind of like that thing with a piece of bread w/ a hole and you crack an egg into it. except w/ these cornmeal patties or pancakes, you lay in a partially cooked? meat patty before you slip the whole thing into 1/2 " of hot oil....What I want to create is a one piece sandwich with the meat patty cooked into the cornmeal patty. is this crazy or doable? any ideas? I appreciate your time!
