This post also could be titled: Why I’ve been enjoying meatloaf leftovers for the week. If you are looking for a kick-ass, tried and true meatloaf recipe, my mom’s spicy Mexican Meatloaf is really, really good. Have you ever noticed meatloaf is like gumbo — it tastes incredibly better as leftovers?
