If you haven't tried my meatloaf yet, you will never look at adding breadcrumbs to meatloaf the same way again. Trust me, whether or not you are grain and gluten free, forget about breadcrumbs...why waste good retail space with filler when you could add CHEESE instead? This meatloaf has diced Cabot pepper jack cheese instead of bread crumbs or faux crumbs, etc. The cheese adds FLAVOR, creaminess and depending on what kind of cheese you add...it adds some zip too. I've used shredded cheddar and monterey jack cheese before, also. Rather than dicing up onions or adding catsup or tomato sauce...add fresh salsa instead, particularly if you are looking for a little Mexican or southwestern style flavor. Why add dry stuff (crumbs) to your meatloaf only to have to turn around and counter the dryness with egg, catsup, etc. Keep it moist and flavorful...period! That's my meatloaf rant for the year. LOL
Lastly, I was SO excited when I pulled into the driveway this afternoon...I have actual visual proof that it really is fall! Our leaves are not only beginning to turn color but I found a few on the ground, too! Yippeeeee...bring it on! Check out the photo of my super easy and quick meal tonight. It's nothing fancy...just good food! Enjoy!
