Most everyone has a easy meatloaf recipe whether passed down or as this one that you have come across in your search for an epicurean delight. It is easy to make and once formed it can be baked or smoked depending on your desired cooking method. The first time any type of meatloaf recipe was written down goes back to the 5th century in the Roman cookery collection Apicius. It was a traditional German, Scandinavian and Belgium recipe and from that time so long ago it has become a staple for most people around the world. It isn’t always made in the exact same way, loaf form, but as long as you have ground meat and something to help bind everything together than you have a type of meatloaf recipe. It first made its official appearance in America in colonial times and was probably brought over with the original German and Scandinavian immigrants. It finally found it’s rightful place in the recipe books in the late 19th century. Many of us are glad it finally got into print so we can take that original recipe and as we all do we can put our own spin on the ingredients and the topping.

She also includes rolled oats, a great addition since they are healthy and add fiber, and adds an onion in the mix as well as topping it with ketchup. You can also go with tomato paste or really whatever tickles your fancy. The topping is basically there to keep it moist since it is usually cooked uncovered. The beauty of loaf recipes is in the unlimited option of adding things you like. Chopped hardboiled eggs, carrots, celery and even most types of cheese just to name a few.
