This is one of the best main dishes that have high protein but a lower amount of calories. So this will be very good for those who are not having a strict diet. Besides that, if you want heavy stamina and energy, then no doubt this is best for you.

But meatloaf is not good if you have a strict diet. The high protein will not be good for you. Also, the amount of fat is very high in this recipe. So, you will have a restriction on having this if you want to reduce your weight.

As the recipe uses beef, you must be careful if you are an allergy patient. This is high-protein meat that will increase allergy. Sometimes this will lead to a serious situation if you have a serious allergy. 

What Ingredient Keeps Meatloaf From Falling Apart?

Keeping together is the task of eggs and breadcrumbs. The meatloaf will fall apart if you don’t use these two ingredients in your recipe. So, you need to use them in the right amount. In my recipe, I use 2 pounds of meat. For this amount, 2 eggs and 1 cup bread crumb is used here. 

If you want bigger meatloaf or more, you need to follow the same ratio. More or less of these two ingredients will destroy the meatloaf stickiness. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are answers to some questions that will help you clear some of your doubts about the recipe. 

Is it best to cook meatloaf covered or uncovered?

During baking time, the meatloaf should be uncovered. This is best practice. But using aluminum foil paper to cover it for a few minutes will keep the meatloaf moist. So, you may cover it in the later half of cooking or baking.

What temperature should the oven be to cook meatloaf?

The oven temperature should be around 350 degrees while baking the meatloaf. If you increase the heat, it will reduce time. But increasing heat to save time will keep the inner part unbaked. At the same time, the outer surface will be overcooked.

What is the secret to moist meatloaf?

To keep your meatloaf moist, use aluminum foil under the baking tray. This will keep the meatloaf moist. You can also cover it with that paper when the meatloaf is half cooked. This is the secret of keeping the meatloaf moist.
