Great! I keep homemade bread crumbs (made from toasted leftover bread and run through the food processor) in the freezer, so this was easily put together for an Italian meatloaf. I love that you can both control the ingredients and make something better and less expensive than what's sold in stores. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
