I make meatloaf probably once or twice a month. Each and every time, it's a little different.
I have found that I can add just about anything to meatloaf to add a different flavor and make it taste a little different, just based on what I have in my kitchen.
A few examples:
I found a recipe once for an apple meatloaf and when I made it, it came out quite nicely, so now, whenever I have apples that I don't think anyone will eat, I cut them up small and put them in my next meatloaf. They add a sweetness, and the meatloaf is really nice.
If I don't have eggs, instead of using packaged breadcrumbs, I will soak two pieces of sandwich bread (I've used both white and wheat, they work the same and taste about the same also.) in a bowl of water for a few minutes and then put it in the meatloaf. (I also learned this from the apple meatloaf recipe that I found.)
If I have taco seasoning, but not other stuff to make tacos, I will put taco seasoning, onions, maybe peppers etc. in my meatloaf with some shredded cheese on top and have a taco meatloaf.
sometimes I'll put some garlic, onions and Italian Seasoning inside, with some tomato sauce and mozzarella and parmesan cheese on top and then I have an Italian Meatloaf!
So I take something that I always used to think was a really boring meal, and basically make it a little different every time.
