When it comes to comfort food, nothing beats a hearty meatloaf. Meatloaf is an American classic that remains a dinner-table favorite today. Packed with bold flavors and loaded with ground meat, it’s a satisfying and easy weeknight meal that the whole family will enjoy.
A traditional meatloaf is made of ground beef bound together with breadcrumbs and often an egg and then mixed with spices and herbs. Ground beef is significantly less expensive than steak and other cuts of beef, making meatloaf a bargain meat dish. Some might even prefer the taste to steak because of the added spices and herbs.[slideshow:
Check out some of these easy meatloaf recipes and make sure to put one (or two) into your weekly menu. To save extra time, try preparing the meatloaf in the morning, store it in the refrigerator during the day, and then when you get home, all you have to do is throw it in the oven.
