Meatloaf is one of those dishes that we can count among the canon of dinner classics. Many remember this meal as a family anchor—a dinnertime standard that your mom, dad, grandma, or other loved ones cooked up time and time again (and with no shortage of compliments).

Despite the fact that so many rally around this memory-heavy meal, it's also a dish that never fails to divide us. Over on the Hotline, community member jimcrowl was wondering about the "right" mix of meats for the perfect meatloaf, and that got us thinking: Is there an ingredient you cannot do without or something that you would never allow? Do you cook up a recipe from days past, or are you more inclined to develop a meatloaf redux? Or do you buck conventions altogether and take a (not)recipe route?
