This is THE BEST meatloaf I have EVER eaten before. The balance of flavours is PERFECT! The only thing I changed was that I used shallots and 2 cloves of elephant garlic because that is all I had. I used 4C seasoned breadcrumbs. I am so glad I "stumbled" across this recipe. Thanks for posting! Now I am off to go see what other recipes of yours I haven't discovered.
