This meatloaf did not taste anything like the original (which is amazing). Back to the drawing board....

I can't resist ordering the meatloaf at Cap City every time I go there! so I was very excited to see the recipe and try it! Like others, I did not have the veal so added extra pork. I made the Cap City BBQ (yummy!) and, I made the onion straws to complete the recipe. I plated it just like Capy City with the meatloaf on the bottom follwed by the mashed potatoes on top, drizzled the bbq sauce and topped with the onion straws. Everyone loved it! Thanks for a great recipe!!

Best Meatloaf I've ever had. I could not find ground veal so I just added more ground sirloin. I also could not find shiitake mushrooms so I used gourmet white and cut them into small thin pieces. I topped this off with Montgomery Inn's BBQ Sauce and think that was a perfect match.
