    Cooking Beast's Note:

    A meatloaf is capable of infinite variations with spices and ingredients. The combination of meats in this version makes this dish more delicious and firm. Bake it free form on a baking sheet or shallow pan, not in a loaf pan, or it will be mushy. It goes great with mashed potatoes or rice. This satisfying dish is adapted from The New James Beard (1981).
