Paul Ryan Cooks at Home, His Recipe for Venison Meatloaf

Cooking brings people together, even some Republicans and Democrats

Paul Ryan and many, more of us have a “love” for Meatloaf, the classic American dish, as captured in a new book, A Meatloaf in Every Ovenby Frank Bruni and Jennifer Steinhauer.

President Trump weighs in too, with his opinion.

It has been reported that Mr, Bruni, the NY-T restaurant critic from Y 2004 to 2009, felt that meatloaf was the one thing he felt confident cooking at home.

Ms. Steinhauer found that making meatloaf was an easy fix as a time-pressed mother, and congressional reporter.

The book includes 50 recipes, running from classics to internationally flavored meat loaves to offerings from Star Chefs Bobby Flay and Mario Batali.

The most newsworthy recipes of the bunch are included in the Political PS section, the result of a conversation between Ms. Steinhauer and Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), whose Mother’s recipe is included in the book.

On Key participating politician chef recipe is House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Venison Meatloaf.

“After Mr. Ryan became Speaker, I went to his office to interview him, and he said, ‘Are you writing a meatloaf cookbook?’ His staff had clearly done their research,” says Ms. Steinhauer. “He began to recite his meatloaf recipe. It’s made with venison.

He is an avid hunter, he hunts with bow and arrows, he butchers and grinds his own meat, which is no small thing.”

According to the headnote, the only topic that animates Speaker Ryan more than the earned income tax credit is deer hunting.  The flavorings are from the old school of meatloaf: Lipton’s onion soup mix, Italian bread crumbs, and ketchup, heavy on the ketchup.
