I love meatloaf too! Mine is usually not dry unless like others have said the ground beef is to lean or....I get heavy handed with the oats I use as filler. I don't use a recipe and never measure for meatloaf. Like Chopper said "just supposed to know how to make it" (in my family too). When I was growing up, I believe we ate meatloaf at least once a week.

Thanks for the suggestions, but I fear I'm a lost cause when it comes to this dish.

Maybe Addie and I can make reservations somewhere while ya'll enjoy your yummy loaves at home. LoL!

Heeeey...that sounds easy and tasty. Can I use any kind of corn chips? We don't have Fritos up here.

No Fritos!? You poor thing. We get them here in Quebec. For a long time we could only get bbq, but now we can get plain again.

Don't know if that is true--Tuesday night was meatloaf and I had to make it. My dad still asks me to make meatloaf whenever I visit. A bit of this, a bit of that...but one of my favorite meatloaf combos is to mix salsa in with the meat and put a layer of spinach or chard in the middle. a bit of salsa, a bit of cheese, and top the meatloaf with salsa and mozz.And the other fav in our house is cabbage-roll meatloaf.

I don't think I've ever made the same meatloaf twice, even with a recipe.
Nor have I. I just toss it together...no recipe.

I usually add powered milk and some oatmeal or saltine crackers...or bread soaked in milk. Depends on what is in the house.

And that is what meatloaf has always been. A way to stretch the family dollar for meat. And that is what the fillers do. For those of you who are too young to remember, there was a time when ground meat (was it beef or something else) was the cheapest thing to buy per pound (other than chicken). A pound of ground beef could be stretched to feed a family of six.
