Meatloaf 101 with Mrs. Kostyra
Nothing says home cooking like meatloaf, all the better when it's an old family recipe, like this one.
Many recipes use only beef, but you can add veal and pork for a more tender loaf. Use an ample amount of breadcrumbs to prevent it from becoming too dense. Add finely chopped vegetables to lighten the texture and add flavor; try a combination of garlic, onions, carrots, celery, and parsley. Many recipes also call for ketchup, which lends a sweet and tangy taste to the finished meatloaf.
