Kicked Up Meatloaf #SundaySupper

Kicked Up Meatloaf - Curious Cuisiniere

This week for #SundaySupper, we are going Retro!

No, we’re not pulling out the orange shag carpet.  But, we are going back to those tried and true recipes that remind us of a different time.  Some of the dishes being shared are age old family favorites, and some are new renditions of a classic dish.

Kicked Up Meatloaf - Curious Cuisiniere

When we started thinking about retro food, for some reason meatloaf was one of the first things to come to mind.  A thick slice of a savory loaf with some mashed potatoes and green beans just seemed like a hearty and classic meal.

Since we’ve been on a spicy kick lately, we decided to add a bit of heat to your traditional meatloaf to change things up a bit.  This is an incredibly flavorful loaf, even outside of the spiciness, so if you like things a bit more on the mild side, you can always cut back on the amount of red pepper or hot sauce.
