When my son Eryk was a little boy, he used to ask me to make this at least once a week. He is now 22 and he still says it's his favorite meat loaf. I usually serve with baked potatoes and a green salad.

A good meatloaf recipe. It wasn't quite what I was looking for but good none the less!

This was great...What a fabulous departure from the usual greasy meatloaf! The only thing that I would change is to chop up my pickles smaller (as you said to do in the first place!) Thank you for submitting such a great recipe.
