Gay teenager shares mum’s ‘super secret’ meatloaf recipe as revenge for her ‘f**king abusive’ homophobia
A mother’s “secret” meatloaf recipe has been shared online – after she reportedly rejected her gay child.
The “revenge loaf” recipe spread on Tumblr and Reddit after the teen explained they were making it public to get back at their mum.
The poster wrote: “When I was little my mum’s meatloaf was my favourite food. But ONLY her meatloaf.
“I didn’t like anyone else’s, and she told me that she would teach me how to make it when I was older.”

They added: “And when I was like 19? She finally taught me, but she told me never to tell anyone else and I was like weird but OK.
“Anyway, she was super f**king homophobic and abusive to me when I told her I was gay, so here’s the recipe.”
The teen explained: “You can get almost all of these ingredients at the dollar store, and have leftovers if it’s just you.
“The leftovers make great tacos if (taco seasoning is also like a dollar). Enjoy your revenge loaf.”
Not everyone is a fan of the homophobic mum revenge meatloaf.
Since the post went viral, people have actually tried making the revenge loaf, and the reviews are not positive.
Author Marjorie Ingall revealed on Twitter that she had tried out the recipe, writing: “Last night my LGBT kid told me about Revenge Meatloaf and tonight I made Revenge Meatloaf.”
Asked if it was worth it, she responded: “Honestly? No.”
The writer explained: “it was f**king humungous. bulged out of my biggest loaf pan. and no bread crumbs! it was a MEAT WAD.”
They added that revenge loaf is not a dish best served cold: “i don’t like cold meatloaf.”
Others also raised issue with the lack of breadcrumbs, with one Redditor asking: “While I appreciate a good revenge loaf, how does one properly make a meatloaf without breadcrumbs? Otherwise it is a loaf shaped meatball.”
