Spice up my meatloaf!

I love meatloaf and have a good recipe for it, but am tired of the same old recipe. Any ideas to spice it up? I'm making it tonight! Thanks!

  1. I made Tyler Florence's Ultimate Meatloaf a few weeks ago and it was a huge hit in my house. The red pepper relish really adds a nice zing.

    1. Smoked cheddar, stuffing instead of breadcrumbs, and honey garlic barbecue sauce instead of ketchup. I also add mushrooms and spinach.

      1. I've added spicy sausage to mine and it adds a little zing. And, hard boiled eggs in the middle are fun to find, too.

        1. This "Not Marcella's Meatloaf" posted by NYchowcook a little while ago is on my list to make -- looks yummy!

          1. A couple of tablespoons of prepared horseradish adds a nice bit of "zing" to a meatloaf without making it too spicy. It also helps make your meatloaf moist.
