Yummy. I only pulled the loaves out of the oven 15 minutes ago and already half a loaf is gone - and there's only me and my son home!!! I made the recipe exactly as written - I'm glad I didn't add anything to the meat mixture because it was perfect as it was. A very yummy recipe that I will make again. Thanks Aroostook.
