Along the Idea of Fried Masa Cake with Meat Patty cooked into the Middle...?
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!
