We surveyed recipe developers and chefs to share their top tips on how to prepare a fantastic homemade meatloaf. These tips will help avoid making a mess of your meatloaf.

1. Mistake: Using lean meat

How to fix it: Over-use of meat can lead to dry meatloaf. James Peisker, a chef as well as a butcher and co-founder of Porter Road in Nashville is James Peisker. Don’t eat ground turkey or lean beef. Pick ground beef that’s 80/20. It’s 80/20. That means that it contains 20% fat and 80 percent lean. Peisker says that fat will make the meatloaf more moist and keep it together well.

2. Don’t make a mistake: it’s too soon to slice the meatloaf.

How to fix it You’re hungry. But hold tight. Peisker cautions against cutting into the meatloaf immediately it’s out of the oven. The juices will get on the surface of your pan or plate and the meatloaf could be smashed. Instead allow the meatloaf to rest for at most 15 minutes before you cut into it.

3. Do not make a mistake: you do not have the most perfect potion.

How to fix it. The key ingredient to make meatloaf moist is known as a panade. It’s an exaggerated name for an amalgamation of liquid and starch. Jeremy Hood, a blogger at KtchnDad claims that a lot of meatloaf recipes which call for breadcrumbs don’t include instructions on how to add liquid. Without a suitable panade you’ll end up with a massive hamburger. If you bite into meatloaf it, it must be soft and lightweight. To achieve this, you need equal amounts in liquid as well as breadcrumbs.

4. Don’t let the breadcrumbs sit too for too long.

How to fix it: You’ll have to soak the breadcrumbs in milk prior creating your recipe. This will let them remain hydrated. Scott Hines, executive chef of B&O American Brasserie in Baltimore, Maryland says this is the most effective way to go. He says this is not an easy process. Allow bread crumbs to soak for 5-10 mins.

5. Mistake: Using skim milk.

Jessica Formicola, a blogger at Savory Experiments, can fix it. Skimmed milk doesn’t help in binding.

6. You’re making an error. Use breadcrumbs that are fresh.

How to fix it: Make sure your breadcrumbs aren’t old, or you toast them if you prepare panade with breadcrumbs from your own. Sharon Beck, Kosher Private chef in Miami Beach, Florida, advises. Don’t leave your bread on the counter as it’s likely to absorb some moisture and make the meatloaf dry. She recommends adding breadcrumbs to your meatloaf as well as eggs to help keep it in its shape.
