About National Meatloaf Appreciation Day
Date When Celebrated: This holiday is always observed on October 18
What’s for dinner? I know, let’s have a meatloaf dinner tonight! It’s time to celebrate National Meatloaf Day, an October 18 holiday. This humble, if not healthy entree, has a special day all to its own. I betcha can’t wait to make a it 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’s tastes.
Meatloaf is the culinary butt of many jokes. However, we feel it deserves both a lot of respect and certainly a day of recognition and celebration. It may not be the healthiest meal you can eat, but it sure tastes good. And it helps to stretch the family food budget, too. In times of high inflation, more and more people turn to this low-cost meal.
Did You Know? The Performer Meat Loaf’s most prized possession is his rubber duckie collection.

History and Origin of National Meatloaf Appreciation Day
This new holiday was created by the wonderful folks at “Serious Eats”. They created it in 2018. Seriously, we are glad that they did.
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 is a very new holiday and to date has received little recognition to date.
