While recently discussing foods featuring wild rice, a friend was telling me about a popular, delicious meatloaf they enjoyed at the Rustic Inn Cafe near Two Harbors, Minnesota. Since I spend a lot of time thinking about wild rice, in the fall especially, I just couldn’t resist trying their recipe posted online.

I adapted it slightly to reduce the amount of seasoning and served it draped over homemade garlic mashed potatoes with just a drizzle of gravy. Maybe you’d prefer accompanying it with good-quality small red potatoes, smashed and seasoned to taste, or roasting it free-form alongside large chunks of root vegetables or brussels sprouts.
