True Blood and Lasagna

I remember when I first read Anne Rice’s “Interview with a Vampire”, I adored her romantic main character vampire Louis, with dark good looks and troubling leftover human conscience telling a human interviewer his own tragic story.

I’ve experienced the teenage girl vampire crush so I wasn’t at all curious when my neighbor Bernadette gushed over her favorite series True Blood. Bernadette is positively addicted to it, swooning over the main good/bad guy Bill Compton. My husband and I, on the other hand, knew nothing about the show and are addicted instead to her husband’s home-made lasagna!

As we sat in front of their wide-screen TV with filled plates in our lap, it occurred to me that vampires and good lasagna have several things common. Now that I’ve finally digested an episode of “True Blood”, I can tell you.

Bill Compton “the vampire” and lasagna – both hot, steamy, oh and meaty. They both have the power to “glamour” or hypnotize mortals, and finally they are delicious, bite by bite.


  1. LOL! I love it! Now what food can we associate with Eric the 1000-year-old Viking vampire?

    Thank you for giving the True Blood lasagna a try. As an addicted fan from day one you now see that Alan Ball the ‘chef’ of the show got the recipe right and selected prime meat, Stephen Moyer as Bill.

  3. Mmmm… I wouldn’t trust a mussel that stays closed after it’s been cooked, so no need for Erik’s fangs (not there anyway). How about the lasagna recipe? I’d love to see it!
