What other size can I use to make a meatloaf??

My husband loves bacon meatloaf and I want to make it for him for dinner tomorrow but I don't have a meatloaf pan. The only size pan I have is a 6 or 8 inch, will these size do good. I have made a meatloaf before but using a meatloaf pan never a baking pan.

  • We don't use a meatloaf pan. We make a ball of meatloaf and put it on the broiler pan, this allows to the grease to drain. This is how we cook meatloaf (got it from my MIL), whose meatloaf is much better than my mom's.

  • I NEVER use a meatloaf pan. I just shape into a loaf & cook it on a pan. We like it better that way.

  • I make mini meatloaf with a cupcake pan, so everyone gets the end piece! They cook super fast too. Make sure you grease the pan. Kids love them!

  • The cupcake pan is a great idea! I always just shape 3-4 mini loaves in a baking dish

  • I came up with it because I have four kids that fight over the end piece! Lol

  • You can bake it in any pan your heart desires. If you have a heart shaped pan, that would be cute since it's for your hubby.
