This cajun meatloaf and cajun gravy recipe by Smokin’ & Grillin’ wit AB sound amazing per usual. Meatloaf is not everyone’s cup of tea, but with the right recipe, I enjoy it. I love how he includes cajun gravy to this recipe because I can take that and use it for other meals. The cajun gravy is not videoed in this tutorial, but the ingredients are down below. Make the roux by cooking the oil and 3 tbsp of flour in a large skillet over medium heat. Whisk until it’s brown, then pour the remaining ingredients to a boil. Overall, this is a great recipe to add because I never make meatloaf.

Next, spray the pan with cooking spray and transfer the meatloaf filling into the baking pan. Push down the edges around the meatloaf with your fingers to make the shape. Squeeze regular or sriracha ketchup on top of the meatloaf. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes.

Overall, I haven’t had meatloaf in so long. My dad didn’t make much of it growing up, but when he did it was amazing. I would share this tutorial with my dad and make it one day. My family and I love spicy foods, so this is a great recipe for those that can handle spice.
