Meatloaf

No, not the singer.

"My secret is, I always use fresh tomatoes, never canned. And to give it that extra zip, I mix a little Spam with the ground beef!"
~ Annie Wilkes, Misery

I've been making meatloaf quite often lately, based on different recipes. While tasty I still haven't found the ultimate recipe so to speak. Currently Amish meatloaves are my favorite, but its a bit of a hassle to pulverize them Ritz Crackers.

Is meatloaf still a thing with you guys? What are your personal preferences regarding ingredients?

Re: Meatloaf

I've done this one a few times: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/p...af-recipe.html

I do a variation on it, though, and substitute bbq sauce for the ketchup and mustard. Be aware that it can be rather greasy; I cook it on a rack in a pan so that drains grease easier. Also top it with cheese flavored onions for a bit of variety.

I have also made a mexican meat loaf once (sorry, I don't have a recipe, it was improvised) where I seasoned the meat with taco seasoning, and mixed corn, onions, and peppers in it (might have been a can of mexicorn or something), used taco sauce for a glaze, and then topped it with warm nacho cheese sauce right before serving it.

Re: Meatloaf

Crumbling some crackers is a hassle?

I love meatloaf but rarely have it since no one else in the family likes it.

Place in plastic bag. Squeeze bag tightly in your hand several times, or roll over with rolling pin.

Re: Meatloaf

I've never made meatloaf. I like it. Just never attracted me to make it. One day...

Re: Meatloaf

I like meatloaf, even if it's not made with beef.

Just don't hide hard boiled eggs inside it, thankyouverymuch.

Re: Meatloaf

That's a rather tender subject. Another slice, anyone?

I don't get the hard boiled egg reference, but it made me think of Scotch Eggs ... Now that is some damn good stuff!

As for meatloaf, I do like it but it will give you bitch tits.

Re: Meatloaf

I mix some raw Italian sausage into the ground beef to give it some spice.

Re: Meatloaf

I like to flatten the meat and put thin sliced ham and turkey on it, them cover that with cheese. I then roll the meat up and bake it. When it's ready to eat I slice it so there is a swirl of sandwich meat and cheese inside.

Re: Meatloaf

I just had meatloaf for the first time in years at a luncheon yesterday and it was really good. I think I got burned out on it as a kid, we had it so much. Told my wife and she and I remembered she used to make meatloaf meatballs in a muffin tin and they were really good; we're going to bring them back on the menu because we just plain forgot about them. But between telling my wife how good it was yesterday and then reading this, we're both interested in giving this a try, too, so thanks:

Re: Meatloaf

The perks of making meatloaf are leftover meatloaf sandwiches



I just use plain white bread, slice of cheddar, ketchup and a few pickles.

Re: Meatloaf

I like meatloaf sandwiches but you something more dense than a single slice of white bread. See how thin the bottom bread slice gets? It falls apart and you're back to meatloaf with a pickle side

Re: Meatloaf

I use a 3 meat package of beef/pork/veal, add eggs, milk and breadcrumbs. Mix, roll flat, put shredded cheese and real bacon bits and fold over. Teryiaki sauce or Gen Chow's glaze and throw it on the grill.
