Who doesn't like meatloaf? Meatloaf is satisfying, provides leftovers (usually) and can be made without a recipe....usually. You mix up 3 or 4 loaves and freeze em too!
I don't bother to measure any of my ingredients when I make meatloaf; ground beef, a few eggs, salt and pepper, ketchup and oatmeal mixed together till it looks good. It always turns out fairly well so I normally don't stray from these ingredients. But I know there are better meatloaves in the world than mine.
Of course I have been known to experiment with my meatloaf too. Once I substituted leftover rice for the oatmeal .... not bad. Then I followed this recipe that soaked bread in milk and wrapped the whole loaf in bacon. I thought it was great but the men in my house rebelled and grumbled and requested I return to my original "recipe".
Today's post isn't a recipe I have to share with you but a question? How do you make meatloaf? Do you follow a strict recipe or just throw stuff together? What makes your meatloaf great? or terrible?? I'm looking to spice up my meatloaf and want some new ideas!
