Any meatloaf recipe will also make great stuffed peppers!! I always put a little Heinz 57 sauce in mine.

Our new house favorite is smoked meatloaf. I take just about any base meatloaf recipe, place it in a "fish basket" lined with foil and poke with holes for the juice to drain out. Wrapping it with some bacon works well. I smoke for a few hours at 225-250 over some mesquite/oak coals. Think I will do one tomorrow.

Man, I love me some meatloaf, this thread makes me hungry.

Edit: Also, anyone had a beer that went better with meatloaf than others?

The secret ingredient in my Mom's meatloaf was horseradish. And Mom always used fresh breadcrumbs... not the dried type.

Well-crushed Wheaties are a tasty substitute for bread crumbs. Other than some ground beef and an egg, the ingredients vary every time. The last one had a couple patties of New York Deli-style Hot Italian sausage in the middle.

Made one last night. Used Jalapenos instead of green bell pepper (they don't make it hot). I realized why I prefer mine with no sauce on it when cooking...that 'skin' you get.

Also made my first batch of spent grain bread, for the second best thing about meatloaf...meatloaf sammiches!

Maybe this is just my personal preference, but one thing I would say is a must is that it be soft and fluffy. Some people have a tendency to mash down their meatloaf and make it tough and dense. You gotta be gentle and handle it as little as possible while shaping it.

I think if you can do that right you're 90% of the way to great meatloaf.

A favorite technique of mine is to make individual (1/3 lb ish) meatloaves. The outer crust is always my favorite part anyway, so I make more of it this way. A muffin pan is good for this. They also bake faster than one large meatloaf.

I also like chopped celery to be included.

Totally agree Gfei.

That's a great idea Coastarine. The more end pieces the better!
