Meat and cheese do not always go well together! Once my mom was going through a phase where she was trying to get creative with meatloaf. She took a big ball of cheddar, wrapped ground beef around it, and baked it in the oven. To put it mildly, the dogs wouldn’t even eat it!!
I think you are probably right, Dave. It was definitely like 3/4 cheese to 1/4 beef. I remember thinking that it would’ve made a good prop for explaining the Earth’s core… with the cheese as the volcanic magma and the beef as the crust. Yes, a little simplified for the Earth’s composition, but certainly it was better suited for that rather than dinner!!
