Leftovers get a bad rap, but not where meatloaf is concerned; I think a cold meatloaf sandwich the next day is the best part. In that spirit, we bring you the last of the meatloaf round up. Thanks to everyone who helped make the inaugural celebration of this humble, tasty dish a success!
Sixteen more meatloaf submissions, after the jump.
What's more IKEA than those ubiquitous allen wrenches it throws in with everything? How 'bout Swedish meatballs?

Heh. "Slice, and serve hot or cold with lingonberries, and a side of umlauts." Also on Guilty Pleasures, C. Spencer Beggs makes a bison meatloaf flavored with shallots.
