Ingredients in meatloaf you will need to
The secret to great-tasting meatloaf is to use high-fat meat. This is not the recipe to use 93% lean meat. Choose ground meat with a least 15% fat content.
Moisture is important. Don’t leave out any steps that add moisture to the ingredients. Juicy meatloaf is the goal!
Soaking bread crumbs in milk can bring additional moisture to this amazing meatloaf recipe.
Don’t overmix the ground meat with the remaining ingredients. Keeping it loose during the mixing steps will prevent this meatloaf oven recipe from getting packed and condensed.
You can’t use too much barbecue to glaze.
Let cool at least 15 minutes before serving.
