Gotta say that this is probably the cutest, quirkiest food obsession I have seen in the several years I've been a member of DC! LOL!
And you are so polite and open to suggestion, mignon! Really nice to see!
I love my meatloaf. I use a package of seasoned breadcrumbs called "Tempo" because my grandmother did and I love it, plus an egg, a little water, RAW onions and garlic. That's it. I always use a loaf pan because I DON'T like crispy edges. Having it leftover tonight, in fact.
So, I look forward to your eventually achieving, and posting about, your meatloaf NIRVANA! Ever ONWARD!!
