A well loved American, hearty meal is the classic meatloaf. 

Meatloaf has its origins in Scandinavia and Germany when it found its way to the US in the 19th century. It’s a really simple, but great tasting recipe which has become a popular family dish throughout the States. 

To make a good meatloaf, we recommend buying quality materials. 

What ground beef is best for meatloaf?

In this recipe we use 90/10 ratio beef (90% beef and 10% fat), this being the healthier option. We also find that a 70/30 ration can leave the meatloaf a bit fatty.
