Listen, we've all had bad meatloaf. Whether it came from the cafeteria or your loving grandmother's kitchen, too many of us have been tainted by an unpleasant meatloaf experience. It can be greasy. It can be marred by gristle. It can taste like the color gray.

We're here to change that. Treat your meatloaf with respect by making it with the same meat you'd use in any other meal (basically, don't use scraps and garbage meat). Season it perfectly, treat it with care, take it out of the oven at just the right time, and you'll see it can be something really delicious. You may actually even crave it someday. We want to change your perception of meatloaf. It isn't just for Donna Reed anymore.
