Do I cover meatloaf while cooking?

Cover a single large meatloaf with a piece of aluminum foil during cooking to keep it moist, but uncover it for the last 15 minutes of baking. "Meatloaf is highly suited to being either frozen raw for cooking later or cooked and frozen to reheat." Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Consequently, do you cook meatloaf covered or uncovered?

Also Know, how do you keep meatloaf moist? Stale bread is an essential ingredient in meatloaf, as it works to bind the meat together. But blending in dry bread will take away some of the moisture from the meat. Follow this tip: For a more moist meatloaf, soak the bread in milk until it becomes thick and mushy before blending the mixture together.
