Cajun Meatloaf

meatloaf1 Cajun Meatloaf

So I do have another meatloaf recipe, this is something I would make in the winter to help heat the house up. Unlike the slow cooker recipe using the oven really helps keep everyone warm, though who doesn’t love laying under blankets? If you’re in the mood for a little Cajun (who isn’t?) then this recipe is right up your alley. My favorite thing about this particular recipe, besides heating up the house in winter is the glaze topping. It adds a sweet and spicy taste to the meat loaf and if you get the glaze right its got an added “crust” to the meat loaf while the inside is soft and juicy.

I’ve made this many times and have perfected the glaze, if you follow the recipe you should be able to replicate it quite easily too. A fun twist on a classic dish!

Happy Cooking! Post a comment if you’ve tried this or have suggestions!
