    Chef Chessie's Note:

    This tomatoey onioney meatloaf is my family's favorite comfort food. When mixing raw meat with my hands, I like to measure everything out before i begin so I do not contaminate containers. I like to prepare it and place in loaf pan the night before so it binds well. I add the ketchup just before I put it in the oven.

      My husband used to love all meat loaf but not after trying this one. It is now the only meat loaf that he will eat!! The preparation is just so quick and it is no problem leaving it in the fridge overnight - if my husband does not know that it is in there!! I made up a batch on Monday and put it into three mini loaf pans and one larger pan, cooked it up on Tuesday and on Wednesday, I am the Queen of Meatloaf!! I handed out the mini loaves to friends at work to rave reviews. Five Star Meatloaf!!
