Food That Looks Like Family: Michigan Mom Makes Hilarious Meatloaf That Looks Like Her Son


You are what you eat.

Melissa Suriano of Mesick, Michigan seemed to take the phrase to a whole new level after she recently surprised her son with a rather personal dinner.

Suriano presented his 17-year-old son, Collin, with a large meatloaf that resembled his face.

Melissa Suriano told Kennedy News and Media the personalized dinner was a thank you to her son for how he helped her around the house when she started a new job.

He also helped take care of his younger brother, Boston, who has special needs, and organized the family basement, which his mother described as “really messy.”

“I thought it would be fun to make it look like him because we had a special celebratory dinner,” she said.

Collin Suriano was apparently stunned by the presentation which so closely resembled his face.

After the meatloaf was cooked and served, he told Kennedy News it was “weird” to see a likeness of himself being eaten.

Although the teenager found humor in the gesture, he also wondered why he couldn’t have a “normal” mum.

“At first, I found it all extremely funny — like her carving my face out of a photo to make a meatloaf,” he said of his mother’s efforts.

“I don’t think any other mom in the world has done this before, which makes it really weird, but it’s a good weird thing,” he also said.

The 42-year-old mother-of-four, who works as a behavioral technician for children with special needs, described Collin as a “good young man” – and said that “deep down” , she knew he really loved his meatloaf masterpiece.

“Are you going to have a second serving? You are really going to be full of yourself.”

“His brother started teasing him about it and saying silly things like, ‘Are you going to get another drink? You’re really going to be full of yourself.'” she said.

“[Collin] said, ‘No one would ever do that but you. Why can’t I have a normal mother?'”

“But it was funny, and he was teasing,” the mom said.
