      A very nice meatloaf! The loaf came out very tender, and the addition of the mushrooms and all of those herbs just made the flavor sing. I've never used cognac or port in meatloaf, they added a classy note that I very much liked. I used Tawney port, as I thought ruby would just be too sweet. Thanks for posting a great recipe!

      Made for ZWT6 as a last minute choice when I opted to have a meatloaf for dinner tonite. I did not have fresh mushrooms, but it was otherwise made as written & was a lot of fun to make! I was dancin around my kitchen singin *parsley, sage, rosemary & thyme* like I was backup for S&G. I made 2 mini-loaves so I could freeze 1 for another dy. The aroma as it cooked was heavenly & the flavor terrific. Thx for sharing this great recipe w/us. :-) *Edited to Add* ~ This meatloaf cooks to a lovely & esp flavorful crispy crunch on the surfaces. *Yum* !
