I made this Sunday for the “date night redo” meal. I’ve also made it as meatloaf muffins, stuck a finger of my impeccably clean hand into each “muffin,” and then filled that indentation with ketchup. Josh always eats his meatloaf (in whichever form I make it) with extra ketchup. I usually use cracker crumbs; on Sunday I used store-brand buttery round crackers (the brand name starts with “R”).
