Mealthy Tip

Letting the meat rest before cutting retains moisture, so don't skip that step. Buy whole chuck and sirloin and grind your meat at home for fresher flavor. If you like spice, add a 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper or a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes with the other spices. Leftover meatloaf is delicious served as a sandwich on a crusty roll.

The Mealthy Tip to grind my own cuts of beef was something I don't need to be told twice! Nothing beats freshly ground meat, and in a meatloaf that's important! I have a sweet and hot style ketchup that I like to use in place of regular ketchup, and it went really well with this. Delicious!

I grew up on meatloaf and still love it today. Sometimes my boys can be picky eaters, but they really liked this recipe. They even asked for seconds!

I really love this meatloaf! This one didn't leave all the liquid at the bottom of the pan like a lot of recipes. I added mustard to the ketchup mix for the top, so good!
