A typical dish in American household, especially during the holiday season but not so much in Malaysia, and it’s non-existent in a Malay household. What is a meatloaf? According to Wikipedia:
Meatloaf is a dish of ground meat formed into a loaf shape, mixed with egg and breadcrumbs, then baked or smoked. The loaf shape is formed by either cooking it in a loaf pan, or forming it by hand on a flat baking pan. Meatloaf is usually made from ground beef, although lamb, pork, veal, venison, and poultry are also used.
So naturally, being a malay, we don’t eat the traditional meatloaf. I’m only familiar with the processed slices of frozen meatloaf (or so they say) that you can find in the supermarket. A couple of days after Christmas last year (feels weird to write last year since it was just a couple of weeks ago!), I was in AEON Station 18 Ipoh and was surprised to find packs of meatloaf!
