Sauteed greens, a green salad with oil and vinegar and some sourdough garlic bread.

I think of meatloaf as comfort food, which to me means it is usually a heartier meal so I would probably serve a light dessert like fresh berries with freshly whipped cream or fruit with yogurt sauce.

I often wonder why so many folks serve mashed potatoes with meatloaf.......there is no gravy! I usually serve baked potato or fried potatoes with meatloaf. (meatloaf really does go with potatoes, but I suppose Mac and cheese would work). Just a thought about the OP's "Italian meatloaf", what about a risotto for a side dish? Sort of keeps it in the Italian vein without adding tomatoes. It would be a rich meal tho, so fruit for dessert I think. ;)

BT, apple pie was my first thought too! I abandoned it when I thought maybe the meal would be too heavy, but what the heck! Why not?! "Great minds think alike"!

apple pie with vanilla ice cream just seems to go with it.

besides, my apple pie is as light and fruity as harry and bolas!


your fruit and whipped cream is a great idea. that would go wityh either an american or italian meatloaf.
