As the holidays approach, we are all gearing up to eat several of our favorite family recipes.

Family recipes are a sacred currency from generation to generation, and we know not to share them...


...unless our family really wrongs us, which was the case with this particular gay teenager when he came out to his family.

Therefore, a family recipe has gone viral.

The tumblr user, "mysteries," shared his story:

He began:

"When I was little my mum's meatloaf was my favorite 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."
"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."





He ended:

"Anyway, she was super f**king homophobic and abusive to me when I told her I was gay, so here's the recipe."

He goes on to share the recipe in an act of sweet, gay revenge.





In practice, this recipe apparently doesn't hold up and comes out of the oven very dense.





But as they say, revenge is a dish best served loaf.

Er...yeah.

Something like that.
