How long would I need to cook a 5 lb meatloaf?


I am going to make a 5 lb. meatloaf.. I never make them that large so I have no idea how long it would need to be cooked... I was thinking of cooking it in a large rectangular dish patting it out flat sort of like a cake. Online I read it would be good to separate it into 2 loaves on a large cookie sheet but I know that's probably going to make a lot of grease for a shallow cookie sheet.

    The dish I'm going to use is a rectangular Pyrex baking dish.. it's 15" by 10" by 2"- Its pretty large. I'm just going to make a flattened loaf patting it down,leaving room around the edges. Will try to take a photo..I'm making it later today.

    Thank you for your reply and for the tips! I had never heard of putting a pan of hot water below the meatloaf to help from cracking but it def makes sense-so it should be put on the rack below, directly under the meatloaf? Thank you :)
