National Meatloaf Appreciation Day

Meatloaf Dinner Day

Date When Celebrated : Always October 18 th

What's for dinner? I know, let's have meatloaf!

It's time to celebrate. National Meatloaf Day is here and now! This humble, if not healthy entree, has a special day all to its own. I betcha can't wait to make a meatloaf and serve it to your family. Meatloaf is a budget friendly meal, that can use just about any meat. Hamburger is by far the most popular. Some recipes call for pork, veal, turkey, or even deer and other game meat. Use whatever suits your family tastes.


Meatloaf is the culinary butt of many jokes. However, we feel it deserves both a lot of respect and certainly its day of recognition and celebration. It may not be the healthiest meal you can eat, but it sure tastes good. It certainly helps to stretch the family food budget, too.


To celebrate this National Meatloaf Appreciation Day, dust off your favorite meatloaf recipe, cook it up and watch your family wolf it down!


Origin of National Meatloaf Appreciation Day:

This new holiday was created by the wonderful folks at "Serious Eats". They created it  in 2018.


Almost all food related holidays and special days are referred to as "National". I guess we Americans like our food...and it shows.

We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation. This was not surprising. National Meatloaf Appreciation Day as is a very new holiday and to date has received little recognition to date.
