Classic Quaker Oats Meatloaf really is an old-school classic meatloaf. Just plain cookin’ & hardly anything to the making it of it at all. It’s one of those recipes that really makes you appreciate the taste of FOOD.
Here in the States, we have a dirty little secret. You won’t often hear it spoken of, but It seems like all of America is in love with meatloaf – even vegetarians and vegans find ways to duplicate this homey dish, and I’m seeing meatloaf making its appearance on pub & restaurant menus.
Asian Inspired Individual Meatloaves are a long-time family fave. I used to make them when my kids were small. They loved the individual servings (which also makes them cook up super fast) and I loved that I could make these and get them to down quite a few veggies at the same time. Of course, if you have picky eaters, you can get by with fewer veggies. Seeing these gorgeous little meatloaves practically studded with veggies could be a turn off to some kids. Hey, I get that!
I seem to be getting nostalgic in my “dotage” and have been leafing through my recipe box; hello, old familiar friends! I had to dust off this Cook’s Illustrated Meatloaf, long a family favorite – and the best part of all is the sauce. Oh, that sauce! Double it, triple it, bathe in it, I don’t care, just make the sauce.
