Meatloaf appears in many cuisines. It can be cooked with various spices, with eggs, with ham or with a combination of different kinds of meat. My favourite meatloaf is the classic one from Czech cuisine – Sekaná pečeně. It is very juicy and not fatty at all. As the only spice I add to this meatloaf is black pepper, it has a natural meat flavor. I would say it tastes like cutlets, but with a subtler flavor.

According to Czech cuisine, the meatloaf is supposed to be shaped and baked in a baking pan. But I suggest you use special rectangle pans for the meatloaf as they are more convenient.

The meatloaf can be perfectly paired with any side dishes or salads. Moreover, it can be used in a sandwich for you to take it to work or school for lunch.
