Meatloaf is a traditional German, Belgian and Dutch dish, and it is a cousin to the Italian meatball. American meatloaf has its origins in scrapple, a mixture of ground pork and cornmeal served by German-Americans in Pennsylvania since Colonial times. The American version is usually topped with ketchup.

In Germany meatloaf is referred to as Hackbraten, Faschierter Braten or Falscher Hase (i.e. mock hare).
