"I have tried many meatloaf recipes over the years, but this one is the most moist and flavorful and easiest of all," says reader Carol R. of Grosse Pointe, Michigan. We can't disagree. Simple to assemble and perfect with mashed potatoes and a side salad, Carol says the dish also makes for "a very welcome gift for someone who is not feeling well."
Still, the best part about The World's Moistest Meatloaf has to be the leftovers. Our meatloaf sandwiches didn't even need condiments – just two pieces of bread and a craving for excellent comfort food.
