      Best Meatloaf I've ever had, and I don't care too much for meatloaf (ate it all the time as a kid). The version I had tonight was Emeril's original recipe, which is for the most part almost exactly like this one.

      My husband, 16 year old and myself loved this recipe for a more tantalizing meatloaf. I substituted low fat milk instead of heavy cream. I also substituted GF Gluten free bread crumbs. I served along with mashed potatoes and corn on the cob. I definitely will be making it again soon.
