Picture yourself sitting down to a warm and cozy meal with your family. You have all the components ready to go: the table is set, the drinks are poured, and family is just sitting down. On the table you've got creamy mashed potatoes and a crisp garden salad. What comes out of the oven? Mark Lobel would say, "My meatloaf recipe!" Mark loves using Lobel's All-Purpose Savory Seasoning so much that he created this recipe just to showcase it!

Anyone who has traveled and eaten in Tuscany knows that meat loaves in all their glory are a big deal. Tuscan cooks usually made loaves with finely ground leftover braised or roasted meats.
While many of Tuscany’s offerings still are made from cooked meats, others, such as this time-honored loaf, are made from ground raw meat.

Every fluffy mashed, crunchy roasted, crispy fried, or creamy boiled potato cries out for a bath of concentrated richness of pan juices treated right.
Leftover gravy need never go to waste. So versatile, you’ll run out of gravy before you run out of ways to incorporate it into other recipes—from pot pies, hot sandwiches, and rice dishes to a topping for breakfast hash or Benedict-style egg entrees.
But don’t worry, you can always make more.

Behind every great steak, chop, or cutlet, there’s an equally great roast.
And at this time of year, summertime grilling of individual cuts gives way to indoor preparation of larger meals for family and entertaining during the fall and winter.
So, if you want a sure-fire hit, take a look at where your grilling favorites come from and you’ll have a roast to please every palate.
For example, filet mignon are individual steaks cut from a whole tenderloin roast, or more specifically from the center of the tenderloin, called the chateaubriand. Strip steaks come from a whole shell, also called a strip-loin. Rib steaks come from the whole rib.
So chances are, if you have a favorite steak or chop, the roast from which it originates will likely become your favorite roast as well.

Dumplings are one half of the quintessential comfort food: chicken and dumplings. There’s a reason we’ve already written about it in our Culinary Classic: Chicken and Dumplings. Sure, you can have chicken soup without dumplings and you can certainly enjoy it that way, but once you add dumplings to soup, you really take it to the next level.

It’s said that the word pie comes from magpie, a type of bird known for collecting and hording small items. In that way, a pie can be thought of as a collection of ingredients, secreted away inside a crust.
A pie is technically a dish with a baked filling topped with a crust. The top crust is usually pastry but can be another topping, such as biscuit or mashed potato (as in a shepherd’s pie).
Traditionally a pie, whether savory or sweet, has just a top crust. However, it can have a bottom crust, as in most American-style pies. And on the other hand, in Britain a sweet filling baked in just a shallow bottom crust is called a tart.
But our interest lies in those all-in-one meals, those warm-you-to-your-toes dishes, those comfort-food favorites: savory meat pies.
