Sunday Supper: Meatloaf

September 22, 2013 | By | Comments (1)

Whether it’s a succulent pot roast, cheesy casserole, or warming, savory stew, we love Sunday supper. It’s a dinner party without the formality, where family and friends gather for easy conversation and good food – lots of it!trans Sunday Supper: Meatloaf

This week, we’re paying homage to one of the world’s simplest dinners, meatloaf. There’s so much to love about it; it’s easy to cook, won’t cost you a fortune, and can be spun into so many tasty leftovers.

We owe the idea of meatloaf to a German named Karl Drais. During the 1800s, at the height of the Industrial Revolution, he invented one of the most important kitchen tools of our time, the meat grinder. His invention eliminated the labor-intensive task of chopping pieces of meat into small pieces by hand, turning recipes with ground meat into a staple for the home cook.

Want a break from your tried-and-true recipe? Check out our roundup of meatloaf recipes below. There’s one from country singer Miranda Lambert, her mother Bev and another from Louisville chef extraordinaire Edward Lee. Just add our Perfect Mashed Potatoes, your favorite green vegetable and you have the ideal Sunday supper.
