Harley-Davidson Cafe Homestyle Meatloaf

Recipe by Martini Guy

This comes from the Harley-Davidson Cafe in New York, which apparently is no longer in business. However, the Las Vegas Harley-Davidson Cafe may still serve it. The portions in the recipe would have to be adjusted unless you are freezing some or serving for a good size dinner party.

Sorry .. I may have done something wrong but I believe I made it just as it is here but the thyme was just too overpowering for us. Good texture but i wonder if that should have been teasons and not tablespoons. I will try that next time.
