Sometimes you just can’t improve on the tried and true, and this meatloaf is the perfect example. Our classic meatloaf is made with meatloaf mix, which consists of beef, pork, and veal for the ideal flavor and texture. The glaze is tangy, sweet, and a little spicy, which compliments the savory meatiness of the meatloaf. You can double this recipe and split it between two pans.

I’ve never found a store yet that sells the meatloaf mix . Is there a recipe to make you own?

The recipe says to cook now. With the Suvie 3.0, is it also okay to schedule for later?
