Meatloaf Recipes and Ideas

It seems like every family has their own version of meatloaf. Maybe your grandmother always topped the beef loaf with tomato paste, or your mother insisted that ketchup was the way to cover the meat mixture before it went into the oven. These recipes include clever ideas to tweak this comfort-food favorite. For example, you can make quick and easy meatloaf muffins. Or what about using a leaner main ingredient – you can either try the turkey meatloaf or vegetable "meat" loaf. For maximum flavor, mix up the rolled Italian meatloaf or the hearty cheeseburger meatloaf. And as any meatloaf lover knows, the leftovers are almost better than when the dish has just come out of the oven!
