“These meaty treats, not surprisingly, taste better and healthier than they sound. This basic technique cuts meat loaf’s cooking time in half while adding plenty of flavour and wholesomeness. The zesty horseradish ‘frosting’ baked on top doesn’t hurt either. Try out different herbs until you find your favourite.”
