I made Miss Daniel’s Meat Loaf! Who was Miss Daniel? I have no idea. I assume she was someone associated with the Boston Cooing School, but I haven’t turned anything up yet.
[There will be a video here soon!]
It’s a fairly simple meatloaf and is much improved with the addition of onion.

Tillypronie (note spelling difference) is a Victorian house in Scotland where Charlotte, Lady Clark of Tillypronie collected recipes and assembled them into a cookbook, published posthumously in 1909. The cookbook does mention serving Brussels sprouts in soup, but doesn’t have a recipe with the same name.
