Cindy's Meatloaf

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Cindy Starke

This is a great meatloaf, and it freezes well. Bake loaves, allow to cool, then wrap tightly in freezer wrap or foil. Thaw and reheat in 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.

Wonderful meatloaf ~ I grew up eating meatloaf made with a combination of pork and beef, so this is right up my alley. I find other meatloaf made with just beef to be lacking in flavor, so this was a real treat. Makes great sandwiches too!
