Full Answer

Meatloaf is a baked meat dish, which can be topped with various ingredients, such as sweet sauce or bacon, and served with various condiments, such as mustard. Vegetables that go into the mixture can vary too.

Classic Meat Loaf

This recipe calls for equal measures of ground beef, pork and veal. Onion, garlic, celery, parsley and carrots are processed in a blender together with breadcrumbs. Take the mixture out of the blender and, using hands, combine with the meats, ketchup, mustard, egg, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt and pepper. Bake the meatloaf in a loaf pan in an oven preheated to 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour 20 minutes, having covered the loaf with a mixture of ketchup and brown sugar.

Stout and Cheddar Meatloaf

In this recipe, stout beer such as Guinness is added to onions, celery, carrots and garlic, which have been cooking in a skillet for 8 minutes. Once the liquid is almost gone, the vegetables are combined with medium-coarse white bread, soaked in milk. Ground beef and veal go into the bowl next, followed by eggs, rehydrated dried mushrooms and grated cheddar. Add parsley and season with Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. The meatloaf is shaped in a baking pan and covered by bacon strips. Bake in an oven preheated to 375 degrees for 55 minutes, then broil for 3 minutes to crisp the bacon.

Dijon Meatloaf

This recipe involves mixing garlic, onion, soy sauce, sambal, panko, salt, pepper and eggs with ground pork and turkey. Separately, mix Dijon mustard and sambal to use for dipping. Place the meatloaf in an oiled loaf pan, in the oven preheated to 350 degrees for 1 hour 15 minutes.
