Interesting facts about MEATLOAVES

Meatloaf is a dish of ground meat mixed with other ingredients, formed into a loaf shape, then baked or smoked.

The loaf shape is formed by either cooking it in a loaf pan, or forming it by hand on a flat baking pan.

Meatloaf is usually made from ground beef, although lamb, pork, veal, venison, poultry and seafood are also used.

The meatloaf has European origins; meatloaf of minced meat was mentioned in the famous Roman cookery collection Apicius as early as the 5th century.

Meatloaf is a traditional German, Scandinavian and Belgian dish, and it is a cousin to the Dutch meatball. American meatloaf has its origins in scrapple, a mixture of ground pork and cornmeal served by German-Americans in Pennsylvania since Colonial times.

However, meatloaf in the contemporary American sense did not appear in cookbooks until the late 19th century.

What makes the best filler?

Some swear by the time-tested dry bread crumbs. Others use rice or barley. Many claim you can’t beat the texture of fresh bread soaked in milk. Some radicals don’t use any cereal filler, but this is considered American culinary heresy, and their recipes are NOT considered “real” meatloaf!

What are the best meats and combinations to use?

This one really gets people’s gravy boiling! Many recipes call for all beef, usually ground chuck, especially in the Midwest where cattle is king. In the south, where the hog is revered, it’s common to use half beef and half pork. And, in the Northeast a 1-1-1 ratio of beef, pork and veal is very common, which further supports the Italian meatball / meatloaf connection.
