Let's Talk Meatloaf

All you have to say is "meatloaf" and my mouth starts to water. Granted there are a lot of really bad meatloafs out there, but of those we shall not speak. Last week I was reacquainted with a meatloaf recipe that my friend makes. I had not had this meatloaf in probably five years, but when meatloaf enters the brain nothing can be done you must have it. So I called my friend up and procured the recipe and it was every bit as good as I remember it. Even better she let me in on her genius move of pairing it with dijon mustard mashed potatoes.

This meatloaf in particular is made with a respectable variety of roasted vegetables, mozzarella cheese, and a bunch of other stuff that makes it taste great. And despite my bad picture taking the dish really looks great. One of my favorite things about meatloaf is that there's no complication to its preparation; you just mush it up and throw it in a bread pan.  In short, meatloaf is full-proof and delicious, and really what's not to love about a pan full of meat.
