I form my meatloaf in a loaf pan then turn it out onto a flat pan. I cook it at 400 F and it gets a nice crust on 5 of its 6 sides.

I use 85% chuck.

Consider adding either worcestershire sauc eor soy sauce to enhance the flavor. Add some thyme. Add some grated romano cheese and a pinch of cayenne, not for heat so much as an added background flavor.

Regardless of what Buckytom says, never use turkey.

No turkey, Buckytom. This is decadent meatloaf. And I'm not even sorry that I cannot buy turkey bacon in Mexico. Those smart Mexicans........

Some time ago on Public TV Cooks Illustrated had a perfect recipe for meat loaf. I have tried it and it is good but a lot of fussing around. here is my fave recipe for meat loaf
Meat loaf ***

3 TBL butter
.3/4 cup finely minced onion
cup finely minced carrots.
.1/4 cup minced celery
.1/4 cup diced green pepper
.1/4 cup diced red bell pepper _ if you can find, or use green pepper)
2 tsp minced garlic
3 eggs well beaten
.1/2 cup ketchup
.1/2 cup and
1 tsp ground cumin
.1/2 tsp nutmeg (ground)
.1/4 cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
2# lean ground beef ( 80%lean)
12 ounces ground sausage
.3/4 cup fine fresh bread crumbs
1 melt butter in a heavy skillet, then add onions carrots, celery, bell peppers, and garlic.. Cook stirring often.untill the moisture from the veggies has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool then cover and refrigerate until chilled

2 in a mixing bowl beat together the eggs, ketchup, .1/2 and 1/2 , cumin, nutmeg, cayenne, salt and pepper. Add the ground beef, sausage, and the bread crumbs. Then add the chilled veggies, and mix thoroughly with your hands kneding for 5 minutes
pre heat oven to 350*F.
Form the mixture into a loaf approximately 12x5x2.1/2 inches on a baking sheet. Bake until cooked through or 160*F on a fast meat thermometer {instant read} about one hour let set for 20-30 minutes before slicing

Serves 8

Yes, Dave, the recipe I use is similar to an older CI recipe, but I don't use the "classic" meatloaf mix they recommend, and I think they use cracker crumbs. I started using oatmeal about 20 years ago, when I was out of breadcrumbs. CI has had others since, but I like this one best.

Please help me out here, I feel overwhelmed. Is it bad form not to reply to every comment? I'm supposing that to avoid elongating a thread unnecessarily, one addresses the most relevant comments. Have I been rude to Buckytom? If so, I apologize.

I haven't yet mastered all procedures. I'm still trying to figure out how to lift one sentence from a response to comment on, for example. Each time I click "Quote" I get the whole nine yards.

You are not being rude. Bucky was being a little silly repeating his suggestion. It is certainly aceptable to thank relevant contributors.

To quote part of a post, click on QUOTE as you have. Then, in the new window, delete the parts of the thread you don't want and respond to what is left. Be sure to replace each deleted part with an elipsis (...) to signal to all readers that you are extracting a portion of a longer post.

The basic mixture is a matter of taste. I've made meatloaf with several different recipes but I always cook it the same way; I line a loaf pan with plastuc wrap and use the pan to form my loaf,then turn the loaf out onto a pyrex baking dish and bake at 400 degrees.
