WATCH: Mark Bittman’s Meatloaf Rouses Al Roker From His Sick Bed

Both Mark Bittman and Al Roker were feeling sickly on the Today Show this morning, but Mark had to soldier through his bacon-wrapped-meatloaf segment while Natalie Morales filled in for Al.

“You know Al Roker is under the weather when he’s not doing the meatloaf segment covered with bacon,” she remarked.

But a groggy, voiceless Al lumbered out onto the set at the end of the demo to hoarsely accept a generous slice of loaf anyway, and jokingly pin Natalie between two sick men, which, as any flu-fearing adult knows, is enough to fill her and on-looker Savannah Guthrie with horror. Check out the clip below.
