  • my favorite is from the martha stewart website. i believe its title is meatloaf and baked mashed potatoes. My husband and I love it, it is a little different then regular meatloaf. It uses marinara sauce instead of ketchup and I think it has more herbs then regular (i really wouldnt know this meatloaf is the only kind I have made).

  • I mix the meat with bread crumbs, parm cheese, soy sauce, egg, salt and pepper, Lawrys season salt, garlic powder and sometimes chopped green pepper and onions. I put in a loafpan and bake for about 30-45 minutes.

  • Super easy italian meatloaf:

    1. Get a bag of italian croutons-- run them through the blender or food processor to make crumbs
    2. mix crumbs, a can of italian diced tomatoes, meat and egg
    3. top with a little marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese if you wish
    4. bake

    the croutons are so full of flavor that you don't need to work on seasonings.

  • I use the recipe I got from the show America's Test Kitchen. You use 1 lb ground chuck and 1 lb ground sirloin. It calls for unflavored gelatin to give it a very creamy texture, as meatloaf was origionally made with veal. It has cracker crumbs, eggs, choped celery, garlic and onion. A table spoon of tomato paste and you form a loaf on a piece of foil on a cooling rack on top of a cookie sheet so all the fat drains off rather than sitting in the loaf pan. You coat the top with katsup, brown sugar,and some vinager. It is amazing.
