Beef Loaf ~1904


It turns out that meatloaf is not a relic of the 1940s…Who knew?

Note: For the careful reader, you’ll find that the recipe is truncated. No, the recipe doesn’t continue somewhere else in the paper. Talk about your 100 year-old cliffhanger! You’ll just have to wing-it. My advice? Smother your beef loaf in ketchup and A-1; it’ll be fine.

  1. My mother was born in 1917 and she always talked about her mother’s ground beef loaf. She was raised on a dairy farm. There was always beef served often. Meat loaf was around before WWII.
