Good meatloaf is about as comforting as comfort food gets. Thankfully, meatloaf doesn't have to be complex to be good. It just needs to be tender (from breadcrumbs soaked in milk and gentle handling) and flavorful (from onion, garlic, and ketchup).

Made from a combination of beef and pork, these meatballs are a Scandinavian favorite that goes from appetizer to main in a flash (just add noodles). It's a tradition to serve them with sweet-tart lingonberry jam; if you can't find it, grape or red-currant jelly is a good substitute.

Meatballs coated in marinara sauce, smothered with cheese, and sandwiched in brioche rolls are a party-perfect nibble. For tender meatballs, combine the ingredients gently and don't pack the meat too tightly.
