  • Pour the stock over the top and place in the oven. Place in the oven and bake for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours, basting occasionally. Remove the pan from the oven. Using a long spatula, remove the meat loaf from the pan. Place the roasting pan on the stove, over high heat. In a small bowl, whisk the flour with 2 tablespoons water. Whisk the slurry into the gravy. Bring the liquid to a boil and cook for few minutes, stirring constantly. Season the gravy with salt and pepper. Slice the meatloaf in to 8 pieces. Serve two slices of meat loaf per person with a spoonful of gravy.

  • If you want something a bit diff, try chopped green olives and stuff mozzerella inside middle of meatloaf....yummy! I actually place mine in a wire rack and then the rack into a 9x13 pan half with with water to drain the juices and grease. In the 9x13 I put slivered onions(cause the kids dont do onions) and chopped carrots, or any vegetable....a complete meal.

  • depends on the day i guess. i do a plain meatloaf most people would eat, then i have an italian meatloaf recipe, a swedish meatloaf recipe, and a texmex meatloaf recipe. but our favorite is Southern Living's Alabama meatloaf and i just made it Monday. If you want the recipe and can't find it on the SL website let me know.
    Sometimes if you are in a hurry, just mix your ground beef with a can of condensed vegetable soup and bake, it turns out pretty good for no effort in the process.
