Meatloaf is one of those dishes that you either love or hate. Usually that dislike stems from a bad experience with a poor serving. I've had some pretty bad meatloaf myself, but I won't mention where it came. Not too long ago, my mom bought me a meat loaf pan and now I really like meatloaf even more.
It has these ridges in the bottom of the pan and little holes for the excess grease to drain into a nested pan under it. This makes all the difference in the world. I can't stand greasy food. Plus, with the grease gone, you are left with a moist meatloaf that doesn't fall apart when you serve it. There are several versions that you can find in stores and online. Even Rachel Ray has one.

Sweet 'N Savory Meatloaf

Salt and Pepper to taste
Mix all together and place in meatloaf pan (don't grease it!)
Glaze Topping (increase as needed to cover your loaf)
1 Tablespoons brown sugar

Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 155 degrees.
I hope you enjoy it!
