I don’t recall us eating much meatloaf when I was a kid. I’m sure we did because it’s, you know, meatloaf. An absolutely classic comfort food. It’s a dish that when combined with mashed potatoes and gravy is called the “all-American meal” – despite the fact that a version was found in a Roman cookbook in the 5th century!
Meatloaf isn’t something I make regularly. In fact, I can only recall a couple of times previously that I’ve cooked it. It’s one of those dishes that have a lot of variables: will it stay together, will it be tough, will it be dry, etc. But hubby loves meatloaf so when I saw this recipe for Mom’s Meatloaf in the new Garfield… Recipes with Cattitude! cookbook from Gooseberry Patch I knew I wanted to give it a try.
