Use Bread to Absorb Meatloaf Grease

I have found that one way to prevent meat loaf fats from settling on the bottom of your loaf pan is to place a piece of bread on the bottom. The meat loaf is not only easier to remove, but once the bread is removed your loaf is a little less fat-laden.

That's also a god way to hide the fact that you "let" a piece or two of bread go know, waste not, want not.

Thanks for that information. Never thought of doing that. Will certainly use your bread idea the next time I make meat loaf.

I make mine on top of raw potato slices. they absorb grease, and keep the loaf off the pan and crisps the bottom at the same time.
