I LOVE meatloaf. Seriously Meatloaf and mashed potatoes are like my favorite meal. DH HATES meatloaf. He hated it as a kid and still refuses to try it again. How can I get him to eat it again. I have tried mini meat loafs…didnt work.

@jesssamesssa: just ask him to try it and if he still hates it then he doent have to eat it again.
Ps. Have you heard about making meatloaf cupcakes? Mashed potatoes as icing XD love! Very cute too…maybe that might make it more appealing haha

@Laurenskii: I have. I made the mini ones in cupcake pans but he didnt like it. I think it is all mental. He tells himself he is going to hate it so he refuses to give it a real try. He said the same about hamburger helper so I never made it, then one day I gave him a choice and hamburger helper was his choice. He liked it. He chose another flavor the next night.

@jesssamesssa: Try sheppards pie instead! I like to season/cook my meat like I would meatloaf. I usually leave out the breadcrumbs (but you can add them for sure!), then layer with potatoes and veggie of choice…And I like to sprinkle with a little cheese. You cook the meat first this way, then layer, bake at 350 for about 25 mins and serve it with Ketchup!
SO LOVES it when I make sheppards pie! And personally, it’s quicker than meatloaf so great when you are hungry and in a hurry!

@jesssamesssa: When you make meatloaf, keep some of the micture aside and form it into a couple of patties. Cook those up for him and serve yourself the meatloaf. Serve both of you the same sides.
After he has finished you can tell him it was exactly the same mix.

Maybe try something that isn’t a traditional meatloaf. Try searching “unique meatloaf recipe” on google, a ton of cool stuff comes up. Since it’s probably more in his head rather than taste, if he sees something different than his mental image of a meatloaf that might help him get over it.

My husband doesn’t like traditional meatloaf. He hates onions and peppers, which most would have. He wouldn’t even entertain the idea of it… So I had to come up with another idea. I made Giada’s turkey meatloaf with feta and sundried tomatoes. I added my own glaze on top during the last 15-20 min of cooking (ketchup, dijon, honey, worchestershire, garlic powder and pepper). He now requests it!

My husband isnt crazy about meatloaf, but actually begs me to make this:

Ok I’m a little late to this post but I just had to say…
I LOVE meatloaf…. for a while DH refused to try it cus he Hated it as a kid. But when he finally told me how his mom made it i realized why he didn’t like it. Eweee I wouldn’t like it that way either. His mom used to put ketchup on top and bake it in a loaf pan so it was so dry.
But the good meatloaf as my grandma used to make it you top it with plain tomato sauce instead of ketchup and a few onion slices for flavor. then you mold it into the shape of a loaf and cook it in a larger pan with a little water, unions and beef bullion around it. That keeps it moist and gives you the juices you need to make gravy!
So i made it and told him he has to try it! My first attempt was good but not great – i did better the second time.
Now my DH begs for my meatloaf. LoL

Hmm, I’ve never made meatloaf but am wondering about attempting it. My parents never made it either because they didn’t like it.

My husband loves meatloaf. I don’t.
If you’ve tried various ways to get him to eat it, and he still doesn’t like it, I’d simply stop trying. I wouldn’t try to force lima beans in any form on my husband because I know he doesn’t like them.
If you like it, make a whole bunch of mini meatloafs (Or regular sized) and freeze it (Whether cooked or raw.) so you can have it for yourself.

put BBQ sauce on it instead of tomato sauce, and bacon on top!
we also use oatmeal instead of breadcrumbs

@jesssamesssa: What doesn’t he like about it? I don’t like “chunks” in my meatloaf at all so I make mine with meat and seasoning but nothing chunky. For me its like making a giant hamburger, just baking it instead of throwing it on the grill. If he doesn’t like hamburgers I could see him not liking meatloaf but to me they are just too much alike. Anywho – I liked another persons idea saying you could make yourself small ones & offer him a different main course for dinner.
DH & I don’t like a LOT of the same foods. He loves asian cuisine and ALL things fish. I don’t like either. We go out to eat when DH wants those things to eat.
