Meatloaf is without any doubt, the ultimate “comfort food”. It’s so easy to prepare and so all-purpose, that anyone can try their hands at it; it’s sure to satisfy the most difficult appetites and can be a true piece of culinary art.
My own version that I’m suggesting here has a surprise ingredient: prunes. They add a slightly sweet taste to the recipe, which is well balanced by the addition of vinegar.
The final result is a appetizing, moist, and firm meatloaf with a yummy crust. And don’t worry about leftovers, as they make very tasty sandwiches!
