Tips

Expert Tips

Make meat loaf sandwiches with leftovers. Simply layer thick slices of warm or cold meat loaf between bread slices.

Makeover recipes are comfort-food favorites that have been remixed with less fat and sugar so they're healthier.

Assemble this hearty meat loaf up to 24 hours ahead of time, leaving the ketchup off. Cover and refrigerate the unbaked loaf until it's time to bake. Uncover, add the ketchup and bake as directed.
