Mixing Bowls

Meat Thermometer: Use a thermometer to ensure the meatloaf reaches 160°F to 165˚F.
Resting: Allow the meatloaf to rest before slicing to keep the juices in and the meat moist.
Meat Variations: Experiment with ground chicken, turkey, or a mix of beef and pork.
Storage: Store cooled leftovers in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for 3 months.
