Now that the days are getting shorter and the air outside is cooling, I’ve started to think about fall comfort food. The windows are open and the oven can be used without giving the air conditioner a run for its money! The topic today: meatloaf.
An easy, cheap, family staple. So many options, so many countries to travel to with flavor variations. My favorite is a mango chutney turkey loaf. (See rough recipe below) My desire to have meatloaf this week was sparked in part by a recipe in the new Cooking Light magazine and a recipe on today’s Paula’s Best Dishes on the Food Network.
