Default Beetloaf- Can it be done? SHOULD it be done?

For a long time now I have had an urge to take one of my favorite dirt-lurkers, the beet, and make a make a vegetarian meatloaf. Not so much vegetarian meatloaf, really, but more a vegetable in loaf form.

Here's what I am thinking...

Make a pot of borscht... either red or golden and add sour cream and gelatin. Chill overnight, and then slice with an electric knife. Serve in loaf form with horseradish sauce.

Would this work? SHOULD this work?

My wife, when we were engaged, threatened to put it in the vows that I would never insist she try my beetloaf. I think its a great idea. She turns green and insists I stop talking.

Not too sure about that one Creamy, but then again, I don't like beets in the first place.

I like beets, especially in their pickled/spicy state...

I took a look in my "Flavor Bible" and these are the flavors that go best with Beets:

Butter
Cheese (goat / parmesan / roquefort)
Lemon
Dijon Mustard
Olive Oil
Orange juice/zest
Pepper black/white
Salt
Shallots
Tarragon
Vinegar (balsamic)
Walnuts/oil


From the above I'd use the following (I'm mediterranean!

Beets + EVOO + Lemon + Parsley + Cheese (goat/soft + parmesan/hard) + shallots + onions + garlic + mustard

mix with eggs (binder) + tasty bread crumbs (as filler. I wouldn't use squishy white bread!) + cooked rice (also filler/binder) + maybe Tofu? (not a fan)

It sounds challenging.

Have fun with your experiment!

I'm kinda with 'Banger on this one, but don't let that stop you from giving it a try.

All I can think of is:

"Meatloaf, beetloaf, double schmeatloaf, I hate Meatloaf!" from A Christmas Story...

Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

Beets are a dish best served cold. Like Coleslaw

You must do this.

And film yourself eating it!

FWIW I dislike pickled beets, and am not a fan of beets in most forms, but this sounds interesting.

Just the thread title alone made my stomach turn. But then again, I just can't make myself like beets. My wife has tried a number of times in different preparations and nothing has worked.

Good luck with it!

Ah yes,

As an addendum to my post above, I'd also use lightly steamed/boiled potatoes in cubes in the mix so as to reduce the "beetiness/earthiness" of the beets...

And, yes, wrapping the whole thing in bacon or chicken skin and crisped on a rotisserie would make it so much better!
