• [Video Recipe] Best Ever Homemade Meatloaf

    By -

    Meatloaf is one of my favorite things to make and eat! It’s such great food, once you have a basic recipe, you can add any of your favorite flavor: spices, veggies, cheeses – and still can’t go wrong.

    Did you know that the meatloaf has European origins? I find this fascinating! Every country in Europe has a different type of meatloaf version which is served with mashed potatoes (when warm) and with various sauces and with a loaf of bread (when cold).

    By Wikipedia, meatloaf in the contemporary American sense did not appear in cookbooks until the late 19th century! Pretty interesting!

    This homemade Meatloaf recipe is a really good recipe, and very easy to follow. Sooner than you imagine, it will become your favorite recipe. Meatloaf is great comfort food; you can always add what you like. If you don’t like a flavor, don’t add it! It will still be ok.
