What do you add to your meatloaf to “stretch your meal”? Cooks have used oats, breadcrumbs, vegetables and bread, Many Cajun cooks like to soften bread in milk and add the bread to the meat mixture. This recipe uses the opposite – dry saltines.
Toppings vary – Barbecue sauce, tomato ketchup, or a mixture of both tomato ketchup and mustard may also be used. Meatloaf may be garnished with plain ketchup or a “meatloaf sauce” consisting of ketchup and brown sugar mixed. Or top with mashed potatoes, drizzle with a small amount of butter, and brown in the oven.
