Mom’s Meatloaf

If you’re like most people you probably grew up eating meatloaf, but have you attempted making it yourself yet? The trick is ensuring that your meatloaf stays moist. To do this, use crushed saltines mixed with milk. This will help keep the meatloaf moist during the baking process. 

An added benefit of using milk in your meatloaf is that it will help keep the loaf’s shape intact when baking. Also, another great way to spice up an otherwise mundane meatloaf is to use various types of meat. For instance, consider doing a trio of beef, pork, and veal.
