The culinary inspirations behind modern meatloaf take us back to Europe and countries like Germany, Belgium and Scandinavian. In American during the 18th century Pennsylvanian Dutch were known for making this dish. However, meatloaf hit the main stream in the United States during the Industrial Revolution. The mechanical meat grinder propelled this budget friendly dish into becoming an American classic comfort dish. Our meatloaf recipe adds bold flavors like horseradish, ginger and arugula for a spicy rich experience that provides a unique twist to this traditional family meal.

TIPS: Add all spices to a small container and blend prior to adding to the meat for even distribution of spice flavor. When forming a meatloaf use a baking dish with extra room. The loaf cooks best if it does not touch the sides. Juices from the meat need the space to drip away from the loaf. The drippings also make an excellent base for gravy.
MEATLOAF GRAVY: Use 4 tablespoons of drippings, 2 cups of beef stock and 3 tablespoons of flour to make the gravy. Place ingredients in a sauce pan, thoroughly stir. Cook on medium heat until gravy simmers about 10 minutes. Stir, occasionally. Remove from heat. Gravy will thicken upon standing.
