My mom is from Thailand, so we didn't get a lot of meatloaf growing up in our house. Actually, I don't think my mother has ever made a meatloaf (but her Thai recipes--stay tuned--are incredible). So when our neighbor recently gave me this recipe, I was happy to try it. It turns out exactly what I suspected I was always missing--a nice, traditional, and yummy meatloaf. An added bonus is it sneaks in a healthy dose of veggies. This generously serves our family of 5. It's about 40 minutes of prep work so go ahead and plan to make two as it freezes beautifully (freezing instructions below). Directions here are for one large loaf but I also like making it in lined muffin tins, reducing the bake time to about 45 minutes.
