Garlic Meatloaf with Garlic Butter Sauce


My family loves garlic. This is the perfect meatloaf and mashed potatoes for us. Minced garlic in the meatloaf, roasted garlic in the sauce over the top of the meatloaf and mashed potatoes? Perfect!

Don’t have time to make the meatloaf just before dinner? Form the meatloaf the evening before or morning that you want to make it. Wrap it and keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook. The flavors will meld together even better if allowed to sit for a bit.

Verdict:

The meatloaf was super tender and juicy. The garlic flavor was mixed through out the meatloaf but was not overpowering. The roasted garlic in the sauce mashed into the potatoes and on top of the meatloaf was mellow but added a delicious flavor.

Serve this with a green vegetable or salad for a complete meal.

  1. Lovely meatloaf recipe. I am not a big fan of garlic but I think you could definitely flavour with a different sauce like mushroom.
