Default Meatloaf

Got any suggestions for a bomb meatloaf recipe? I was going to do the usual (ground beef, onions, celery, spices, cracker crumbs, ketchup glaze) but I was curious to see other options.

The only meatloaf I've ever liked was a chicken-based one with a teriyaki glaze on top instead, but I don't know the recipe. Had it ages ago on a family vacation.

Girlfriend does it with BBQ sauce instead of ketchup, which is much more palatable to me.

Definitely this. Though, also, I hate meatloaf.

I keep my meatloaf simple.

pound of ground beef

1 egg

a 3rd of a large onion chopped

a handful of uncooked oatmeal, uncooked cream of wheat, or cooked rice.

Adobo seasoning to taste.

My mom's is just a basic meatloaf but she puts some mustard powder in the meat and mixes yellow mustard in with the ketchup for the glaze.

For a really good meatloaf, mix your meats. Go half ground beef, and split the other half between pork and lamb.

I have read of a mythical "meatloaf mix" available from butchers, but have never seen this in the wild.

I am also tempted to turn my meatball recipe into a meatloaf.

Whole Foods round this way used to have this in their meat department. It also happened to make first-class taco filling.

But what if you want to customize it further and grind your own meat in the food processor?

I mean, there are only so many options. I doubt they'd use anything as expensive as bison or game in a blend like that. Maybe ground turkey or chicken as filler, I guess, but love yourself more than that.

Go for it? The food processor blade is more likely to pulverize than grind, but if you have an attachment it should turn out fine. Beef chuck, lamb shoulder, and pork butt are traditional. (And from the same part of the animal. Butchery terminology is weird sometimes.)

Some friends and I came up with a pretty nice twist on meatloaf in grad school. When the loaf is finished cooking, cut in half horizontally. Now smear a layer of mashed potatoes on the part you just cut and replace the top half. It's meatloaf cake, and the potatoes absorb the flavors wonderfully without getting soggy since it's already been cooked.

Someone tried it again with barbecue sauce and liked it, but the potatoes were way better to me.

We ended up going with what we had on hand and it's a winner. Could have used a finer dice on the onion, but I was in a hurry.

Would have to be to allow them to be piped like that, or whipped.

That looks damn good. I could use that bear ketchup.
