I have a recipe for meatloaf in which the method boils down to:
- In a large bowl, add everything except the beaten egg, and mix well
- Add the beaten egg, and mix well
Now, I understand why you might want to mix all dry ingredients before adding anything wet, for example when making a cake; but here the
everything except the beaten egg is most definitely not dry once all mixed together.
What's the benefit of mixing the egg last, separately?
