This meatloaf is the ONLY meatloaf that will come into this house. If fact this was the first thing I ever made that my husband liked (he had 3 pieces!!!) After making this- I knew I might have a chance of being able to cook good food!!! The relish is pretty tasty!! You gotta try it! I think that this would freeze well too!

This is really a delicious meatloaf. I love the flavors -- I used pork breakfast sausage because our market didn't carry ground pork -- so I left out the olive oil. I doubled the recipe and made one loaf and about 3 dozen mini loaves in muffin tins. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.
