My Cajun Paleo Meatloaf reminded me how much I love meatloaf! It makes the perfect weekday leftovers, and is so easy to take for a hearty home-cooked lunch at the office. But this isn't just any ordinary meatloaf, it's Bobotie! Which is South African meatloaf. I'm not exactly sure where it stems from, but I have had a long-standing obsession with South Africa.
