      This was a very unique take on regular meat loaf, full of flavor and very rich. I had about 1-1/4 lbs. of ground beef, and might add more next time, as the loaf was a little loose when forming it. The flour helped to seal it together, though. I did not add carrots (as I am the only one who likes them). I thickened the juices with cornstarch, which made a very nice gravy. I am so glad I tried this, and will be making this again! Thanks for sharing this.

      We rarely have meatloaf at our house - but that may change! The combination of ingredients came together to make for a meatloaf that had that old fashioned taste we love. I almost skipped the nutmeg (family not as fond of it as I am) but went for it - am sure the nutmeg and beef broth enhanced the taste - great taste and moist is a good combination. Served with a green salad and freshly baked buns ... we enjoyed!

      Very yummy recipe! I did reduce the amount of butter, but otherwise I made it as posted. DS loved was different from our normal meat loaf, but deliciously different! I made this for ZWT6...thanks for sharing.
