Cottage Meatloaf

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by barefootmommawv

I've been making this for years it's a huge family hit. Not sure where I gathered the recipe from but I remember right before I got married I made this folder of recipes I wanted to try on the new hubby. Well this is one that has stuck. It's still in the orginal folder and I use it all the time.

This came out of the oven looking the way a meatloaf should, and it served nicely and tasted great! I followed the recipe exactly except omitting the liquid smoke -- something I've never had in my kitchen. Taking Mikekey's suggestion, I also applied the topping partway through; maybe should have done a little earlier, but it was just fine! Made for 123 Hit Wonders, Feb. 2009.
