Must-Have Tool: A Meatloaf Pan

Meatloaf is a great meal because it's easy to make and is easy to convert to be gluten-free, casein-free (GFCF) and soy-free (GFCFSF). But, I am 35 years old, have been married for 11 years, and have had at least one kid for 6 years. And I just NOW learned that there is such a thing as a "meatloaf pan." Thanks to this fabulous thing, I am totally a fan of the meatloaf as a staple of any GFCFSF diet.

What Is a Meatloaf Pan?
A meatloaf pan is something that I would have invented, had I been thinking. I used to pour the oil/grease into the sink toward the end of the cooking time. It was a pain because the topping would always start to slip off and I was worried that the whole loaf would fly into the sink after the hour or so that it had been lovingly baking.

But a meatloaf pan eliminates that whole thing. It is like a double loaf pan. The inner pan (where you put your meat) has holes at the bottom, so the grease drips into the outer pan. INGENIOUS! Look at the picture and see for yourself. I can't believe a HALF CUP of oil drained out from my meatloaf! Eeewwwww!
