Warm, hearty meatloaf is the quintessential comfort food. You probably have a favorite recipe, whether it is the one your grandmother used to make, or the kid-approved version you now call your own. If not, or if you're just looking for a new loaf, check out these recipes, which cover the classics as well as a few twists.Meatloaf has a lot of possibilities beyond the usual ketchup-glazed, beefy loaf. You can play around with the mix of ground meats, add unusual fillers or flavorings (like prunes or Japanese curry), or spoon on an unexpected glaze. No matter how exotic the ingredients, meatloaf always manages to be reassuringly familiar.
