Expert Tips

For variety, you can use a combination of ground beef, pork and turkey, or wrap the meatloaf in bacon before baking.

You’ll want to set aside a slice or two of this meatloaf before you bring it to the table so you’ll have leftovers for sandwiches the next day. Stuffed in pita bread along with chopped sun-dried tomatoes in oil and a tablespoon or two of plain yogurt, this meatloaf is even better the second time around!
