Just because a meatloaf isn't made of ground beef doesn't mean it can't be delicious.
Meatloaf can handle change. Don't be afraid to mix things up. Unexpected and exciting results may occur.
Surround meatloaf with only those ingredients that enhance the meatloaf, that make the meatloaf a better loaf, not with those that lead meatloaf astray from it's natural goodness.
As meatloaf is prepared, beware the heavy hand or meatloaf will wind up a dense, hard, and unyielding brick, impenetrable to those things designed to help it achieve its full potential.
Always remember to grease the pan.
Although small and insignificant in and of themselves, when part of a meatloaf bread crumbs and seasonings are transformed into something bigger than themselves.
Meatloaf is inherently good.
Meatloaf does not form itself. There is a higher power at work.
So, what has your meatloaf taught you?
