Mr. Food Test Kitchen Tip!

It's important not to over-mix your meat loaf. Over-mixing can make your meat loaf dense and not as juicy. Also, if you want to end up with a really moist meatloaf, we recommend using ground chuck. However, because this meat loaf is made with a mix of beef and pork, you can use a leaner ground beef (90/10) and still end up with a moist and tender meat loaf.

For total comfort, why not serve this up with a side of our Classic Mashed Potatoes and Simple Home Style Green Beans?
