Cindy's Meatloaf

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by CinCity

This was handed down to me from my mother. My best friend's kids wouldn't eat meatloaf until I gave her this recipe. She had tried many different ways. Now they won't eat any other meatloaf that's not "Cindy's".

I am a 35 year old confirmed bachelor and not much of a cook - so my regular diet is boiled pasta with canned sauce . . . . however, recently I have been doing a little exploration in the kitchen and since I love meatloaf (and haven't had it in many years) I decided to give it a shot! I have to tell you that this was without a doubt the BEST meatloaf I have ever had . . . it came out perfectly = tendor, tasty and juicey. I admit that I have no idea what DRY MUSTARD is (and either did the guy at the grocery store) so it was left out - and as good as the meatloaf is . . . I don't think it needs it! I made Potato Gratin (#34540) with the meatloaf . . they cook at the same time and temperature . . . so everything came out of the oven together. . . . they were great together.
