The world’s best meatloaf was made by your mamma and no recipe will come close. So let’s start with the assumption that the best we can do is second best. Hopefully that will be good enough as we present smoked meatloaf recipes, stuffed meatloaf recipes, grilled meatloaf recipes, and more.
Months of experiments produced a superb grilled meatloaf recipe, a meatloaf that may be just as good cold on a sandwich as hot from the grill. Meatloaf is perhaps the ultimate comfort food, but can often miss the mark when it comes to flavor, texture, moisture, and/or crust. This recipe hits every mark exactly.
Here's a recipe for a killer meatloaf made with Italian sausage, wrapped in bacon, and stuffed with peppers, cheese, and onion. A deconstructed and amped up version of the classic sausage and peppers sandwich, this amped up meatloaf is similar to the popular Bacon Explosion and great on its own, as a sandwich, or served on pasta and topped with marinara sauce.
What would improve a classic meatloaf recipe? How about a stuffing of velvety smooth cream cheese? And then a leisurely smoking session to pick up lots of smoke flavor? And for the crowning touch, a glaze of classic German Cumberland sauce made with red currant jam, port wine, mustard, ginger, and citrus. Wow!
Our growing section of burger recipes will help you understand all the angles in making big fat juicy steakburgers or thin crispy diner burgers, and the techniques are very different! We'll take you on a tour of the regional styles of hamburgers, and even give you the secret sauce recipe. Plus sloppy joes, Salisbury steaks, and more!
We need to change the way we think of sausages. Yes, most are tubes of seasoned and flavored ground meats and veggies in a casing, but many are patties. So if you broaden your horizons, this section gives you a lot of freedom. Take these recipes and have fun.
