Don's Favorite Meatloaf

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by lazyme

I found this recipe years ago in the Best Recipes from the backs of boxes, bottles, cans and jars cookbook. It's still my husband's favorite meatloaf. I usually add another can of soup for the gravy so that we have plenty to pour over mashed potatoes too. Most times I also add some sauteed mushrooms to the gravy.

This is a delicious, easy recipe. The only change I made was to use "Campell's Golden Mushroom Soup". I have been using this product for many years after I was told to use it in a Beef Stroganoff recipe and it makes a marvelous difference.
