    Here's what I think might be the difference. I freeze the meatloaf before I cook it. I cook it in the Instapot slow cooker for 6 hours or so. I use Spicy V8 juice as the liquid around it (and over it) and I put some ketchup on it a couple of hours before it's done. Sometimes I add potatoes and onions, sometimes not. But the V8 seems to permeate and make it tasty. I do spoon V8 over it a few times while it is cooking (that's why I add the ketchup late so it won't be washed off).

    Without a bunch of chopped veggies, it holds together well for sandwiches the next day.

    My grandmother's meatloaf was to die for........She had a meat grinder thingy and I am pretty sure she used half ground beef and half ground ham. There was always a faint scent of ham when her meatloaf was cooking. I haven't tried that but it might be a good option. She didn't use V8.......not sure what her liquid was. Beef broth maybe.
    I don't have an instapot, I wonder if I could do the same thing in a Crock-Pot?

    Your meatloaf sounds delicious.

    I would like to say your Granny's meatloaf sounds good, but I think the pigeon would destroy the veal.

    I used to really like ducks.

    No thanks, most of what they cook is nasty, to me.

    Yes, you can do the same in a crock pot. I have an instant pot and do not use it because everything you can cook in it can be done better in a conventional style.

    I've tried several different ways, used several different herbs/spices, several different recipes.

    I cannot make a decent meatloaf!

    I refuse to give up.

    Does anyone have a recipe that is always a big hit with the family?
    Now this is a thread I can sink my molars around!

    Meatloaf is pretty versatile. You can cook a big loaf and live off it for a while. First serving...hot...is a dinner dish. The cold stuff...can be sliced like a deli meat. A slab can also be used along side over easy eggs and hash brown for brekkie!

    Nothing like a cold meat loaf sandwich! Best thing eva on this earth.

    I am ok with that. Anyone that thinks the pigeon, including squab, tastes good... I have tried both and both are nasty.

    lol !!!

    If pigeons were edible they'd be an endangered species in every major population center.
