The Battle of the Iron Grandmas: Meatloaf Edition on ABC's “The Chew”
Meatloaf is a classic American dish families around the country eat for dinner. Every mother and grandmother seems to have her own recipe for meatloaf. Some are rich and delicious, others are simple. There are meatloaf recipes that include ingredients such as cheese in the middle or tomato sauce over the top. Everyone seems to put their own spin on this familiar favorite. Today on ABC's “The Chew” The Battle of the Iron Grandmas: Meatloaf Editions seek to find the best meatloaf recipes grandmothers have to offer.
The battling grandmothers are sure to strut their best stuff for the expert judges on “The Chew.” The judges include Gail Simmons, Geoffrey Zakarian and Aaron McCargo Jr. The three winning grandmas from the past also joined the show including Mama T, Antoinette and Daisy. They will taste the meatloaves to determine which grandmother will win this famous contest. There have been other episodes featuring The Battle of the Iron Grandmas.

Beloved guests on “The Chew” have competed in The Battle of the Iron Grandmas including Mama T. Who will win today's battle? It will be fun to watch as these seasoned cooks heat up the kitchen and try to win this coveted title.
Three New Grandmas Hit the Kitchen
Today three new grandmothers are competing for the Golden Meatloaf from "The Chew." Donna from New Jersey has a big Italian family and her secret ingredient for her meatloaf is bacon grease. Mercedes from New York uses Spanish herbs in her meatloaf, including sofrito. Jeannette from Pennsylvania is a former disco diva from Pennsylvania who cooks pumped up Kosher cuisine and her meatloaf is a side dish too, with onion mushroom garlic mashed potatoes. All of these meatloaves sounds mouthwatering but only one grandmother can win.
Ultimately, Donna won the competition. The judges liked the one pot quality of Jeanette's meatloaf and the smoothness of Mercedes' meatloaf, which would make it great for sandwiches. But they really liked the raisins and carrots used in Donna's meatloaf. Both Daisy and Antoinette liked Donna's meatloaf, too. However, Mama T preferred Mercedes' meatloaf and compared it to her own. Viewers also got a chance to visit Mama T's home and watch her in the kitchen as she prepared an eggplant recipe.
