Meatloaf is an extremely versatile dish and a comfort food for many. There are a number of ways to enhance the flavor of the humble everyday meatloaf, including adding spicy toppings or a variety of chopped vegetables or cheese. You can also vary the meat choices by making your meatloaf with part ground pork or sausage, or try it with some ground veal or lamb.

A ground turkey meatloaf can be a lean choice if made with turkey breast meat, and a little olive oil can help keep it moist. Ground pork added to lean ground beef can make a meatloaf juicier, or use you food processor to grind your own lean pork loin.

If you always use crackers in your meatloaf, try oatmeal or bread crumbs for a change of pace. If you make meatloaf often, you might want to invest in a meatloaf pan. Or, bake your meatloaf on a rack in a larger baking pan to keep it out of its own drippings.
