Five Tips for Mastering Meatloaf
 
  1. Use a light hand when mixing; overworking the mix makes for tough meatloaf.

  2. Moisten your hands lightly with a thin coat of oil when mixing so the meat doesn't stick to your fingers.

  3. Check seasonings by frying up a small patty of the mixture and tasting it.

  4. You can make meatloaf either in a loaf pan or free-form. Free-form meatloaves have a crust all around; loaf-pan meatloaves have a more "steamed" texture. It's strictly a matter of preference.

  5. Let your meatloaf rest for about 10 minutes after it comes out of the oven; it will hold together better when slicing.
