“I have a Product Talk product for you to write about,” Paul told me recently.
Of course, I wanted to know what it was.
Of course, if I was going to write about it, we had to try it.
“It’s kind of tricky to find on the shelves,” he said.
Once we found it, it was definitely worth the search.
Hunt’s Meal Starters are shelved with the canned tomato products. There is Hunt’s Mild Chili Starter, Hunt’s Green Spices for Medium Chili, Hunt’s Chipotle Spices for Hot Chili, and Hunt’s Seasoned Tomato Sauce for Meatloaf.
We picked up the can of the meatloaf starter.
The tomato sauce (Hunt’s premium, of course) is seasoned with all the herbs and spices you’ll need to get a slow-baked meatloaf flavor out of a dish that comes together in 30 minutes. (We made individual loaves and topped them with the sauce.) The sauce gives the meat a slow-cooked flavor, which is a combination of smoky, tangy and savory. It would also be a delicious addition to mix into the meat mixture for your loaf as well as pouring some on top.
I especially loved how it made putting together a meal so quick and simple.
We’ll be trying the other varieties as well.
