sgt. hammer’s BFG meatloaf [cheesy stuffed meatloaf]


A while back in an interview, I was asked by Vaeflare if I had any Heroes of the Storm themed recipes in the works. I responded with this:

“I plan to write some recipes about the heroes themselves. How awesome would it be to take a bite out of Sergeant Hammer’s BFG missile?!” 

I finally sat down and created Sgt. Hammer’s smiley BFG missle… but in MEATLOAF FORM! Spreadin’ the loooove!

If you’re not familiar with Sgt. Hammer’s Heroic Ability, “BFG” or Blunt Force Gun, it’s basically a smiley missile that launches across the map.



Now, this isn’t your ordinary meatloaf… This is a STUFFED meatloaf full of vegetables and cheesy goodness. It’ll explode with flavor!


This recipe has been kicked up with added protein in the form of crispy Quest Protein Chips!



  1. salt
  2. pepper
  3. 1 teaspoon of worcestershire sauce
  4. 2 teaspoons of smoked paprika
  5. 2 tablespoons of smoked chipotle paste
  6. 2 tablespoons of ketchup
  7. 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  8. 5 mushrooms, chopped
  9. 1/4 cup of broccoli, chopped
  10. 1/4 of shredded pepper jack cheese
  11. 1 onion, 1/2 chopped and 1/2 left in reserve
  12. 3-6 pitted black olives
  13. 1 1/2 lb of lean ground beef (I used 90/10)
  14. 2 bags of Quest BBQ Protein Chips
  15. 1 red pepper


Prep time for this recipe is about 35 minutes. Total cook time is roughly 1 hour 10 minutes. This makes ~5 servings.

Each serving contains: 34g of Protein, 16g of Fat and 2g of Net carbs.


  1. Set a small pan on high heat. Add in your olive oil.
  2. Saute your chopped garlic, mushrooms and broccoli.
  3. Let them cook for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.


  1. In a large bowl, combine your worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, paprika and ground beef.
  2. Crush 1 bag of protein chips and add it to the meat mixture. Add in 1 tablespoon of chipotle paste. Stir to combine.
  3. Lay a large sheet of plastic wrap on a flat surface.
  4. Put your meat mixture on top of the plastic wrap. Squish the meat against the plastic wrap to make it flat.
  5. Place your sauteed vegetables on top of the flattened meat. Be sure to leave about an inch of room on each side. The ends will require about 2 – 3 inches of space.
  6. Grab the edge of the plastic wrap and begin rolling the meatloaf on top of itself.
  7. Place the meatloaf in a baking dish.


  1. Shape the meat into a “missle” shape — one side pointy, the other side flat.
  2. Cut small wedges out of the red pepper. These will be the “fins” of the missle. Place them in a circular formation on the flat end of the meatloaf missle.
  3. Mix your ketchup and chipotle paste. Spread this mixture over the pointed 1/2 of the missle.
  4.  Cut a mouth and eyes out of your remaining piece of onion. Place them on to the meatloaf.
  5. Slice pupils from your olives. Place them on top of the onion.
  6. Crush your remaining bag of chips. Sprinkle them over the un-sauced portion of the meatloaf.
  7. Cut an olive in half. Use a straw to poke a circular piece through the olive. These will be the rivets. Place them on the edge where the sauced portion touches the chip-coated portion.
  8. Pre-heat you oven to 360° F. Cook the meatloaf for about 50 minutes – 1 hour, or until done.
  9. Eat!


Now you’ll have a tasty and protein-packed meal that will keep you and your Heroes team fed. :)


It’s a very very smiley meatloaf…


See you in the Nexus, hero! 😀

But make sure you duck — never know when that BFG is going to fire from across the map!

conjured mana brownies [salted caramel espresso brownies]


If you’re ever feeling hungry in World of Warcraft, you can always ask a friendly mage to conjure up some delicious refreshments. It’s like POOF, food just comes out of no where!

Unfortunately, I didn’t roll a mage, so I have to create brownies a different way: by scratch!


Whelplings love brownies!

These conjured mana brownies vary from its Azeroth-counterpart because they’re packed with protein and caffeine. Talk about a real mana boost!



  1. 1 egg*
  2. 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  3. 2 scoops of Quest salted caramel protein powder
  4. 1 1/2 tablespoons of almond butter
  5. 2 tablespoons of raw agave
  6. 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut
  7. 1/2 cup of cocoa
  8. 1/2 cup of apple sauce
  9. 5 -6 oz of espresso
  10. 1 teaspoon of coconut oil

*Make this recipe vegan by substituting the egg for 1/4 cup of apple sauce!


Prep time for this recipe takes about 15 minutes. Cook time is 20 minutes. This will make about 12 brownies.

Each brownie contains: 5g of Protein, 2g of Fat, 5g of Carbs and 2g of Fiber.

Recipe adapted from the Buff Dude’s Protein Brownies.


  1. In a large bowl, combine your salted caramel protein powder with your cocoa.
  2. Add in your egg and vanilla extract. Stir until mostly combined.
  3. Add in your almond butter, agave, and apple sauce. Stir.


  1. Add in your espresso and stir. At this point, the batter should be at a “runny” consistency.
  2. Add in your shredded coconut and stir. This will add some texture and thicken the batter.


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350° F.
  2. Place 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in a baking dish. Use a paper towel to rub the coconut oil inside the dish to thoroughly grease it.
  3. Pour your batter into the baking dish.
  4. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the brownie has baked through. You can test this with a toothpick — just poke the brownie with a toothpick; if the toothpick comes out clean, then you’re done!
  5. Let the brownie cool for about 5 minutes. Then, cut it into even squares.
  6. Eat!



Now you’ve got a delicious conjured mana brownie to enjoy! You can keep it all to yourself, or you can share it with some magical friends:


I’m sure those faerie dragons love protein! I mean, how do you think Brightwing got so strong? I bet she eats a TON of protein.

Happy adventuring!
