    I love the combination of meat and capers. I first tried this meatloaf in a tiny Bavarian village, and it has been one of my favourite recipes since.

    Serving suggestion

    You can serve the meatloaf both hot and cold, sliced and made into sandwiches is also excellent!


    Traditionally, meatloaf is served with gravy: 1 tablespoon of flour, butter and stock, to which you can also add a few capers. Serve with mashed potatoes, topping them with a slice of meatloaf and drizzling with gravy.
