Classic Meatloaf

Recipe photo courtesy of José Manuel Picayo Rivera

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).

Cook's Notes

If you usually bake meatloaf in a loaf pan, you'll be surprised to see what a nice crust it gets when it's shaped free-form and cooked on a baking sheet.

    I would not change a thing other than it needs more salt and, for me, slightly less cooking time. Delicious!

    This came out amazing!!! The only thing is that the breadcrumbs mixed with the milk came out in clumps, I don't know if it is the bread, but next time I'll add the milk separately. Highly recommend it-easy and delicious!

    The image shows WVGA as the resolution for the Wrigley, is that incorrect? Regardless, my experience with the Dell Venue Pro (even the supposed upgraded sd card fix) leads me to steer clear. Lets hope those that do buy one have a better experience all round. luis ortiz
