Raise your hand if meatloaf is one of your favorite comfort foods, too! This dish has been the all-American favorite for decades, and it seems to never go out of style. We’ve tried so many different recipes at our house; with special sauces, surprise ingredients, toppings, stuffed meatloaf… All of them tasty – but sometimes you just want a really, really good basic meatloaf.
I think that’s exactly what this recipe is. A delicious, old-fashioned meatloaf with no fancy ingredients that you don’t even know how to pronounce. And that’s what makes this my favorite, of all the meatloaf recipes I’ve made.
I love the fact that I almost always have all of these ingredients at hand, so whenever I’m out of dinner ideas, I know I can’t go wrong with this one. Every time I make this, it’s a huge hit and there are no leftovers (unless, of course, I make a double batch right off the bat).
This is just the perfect combination of everyday ingredients, and the end result is going to blow you away.
If you can get your hands on potato bread then I highly recommend using it for this recipe. And just plain eating it, too – it’s heavenly!
But don’t be discouraged if you can’t find it; you can use another type of bread instead, and the recipe will still be a great success. Sometimes I add a little bit of chili sauce as well – just to add some extra kick. I love serving this meatloaf with either mashed potatoes or beautifully crunchy potato wedges.
