Mama G Tips:

1. Super lean burger will not work well for this recipe. It compromises flavor and texture. I actually often use 73 percent. Confession – If I make this recipe just for myself I forgo a lot flavor and use 93 percent lean.

2. Mix all ingredients gently as over mixing will ensure very tough meatloaf

3. If you love sweet and savory you can sprinkle brown sugar on top of loaf and then add the ketchup.

4. My favorite side-dish for this is Chef Matt’s Leek mashed potatoes. Take a bite of meatloaf with a bite of leek mashed potatoes. Oh, yeah!
