Mama's Meatloaf

Recipe by Mamas Kitchen Hope

This started with a recipe from the Big Star Diner, Bainbridge Island, WA. Of course, I can't leave anything alone when it comes to my kitchen! So I tossed this around and came up with a recipe I hope you really enjoy. NOTE: If you reduce the amount in this recipe you MUST adjust the cooking time or you will end up with very dry results.

Wonderful meatloaf full of flavor and so moist. I used 2 pounds of ground round, italian seasoned bread crumbs, a store brand steak sauce, and Durkee Grill Creations. When almost ready to come out of the oven topped it with a thin layer of steak sauce. The meatloaf held together so nicely when slicing, just like my grandmas used too. I wont be making my meatloaf again after trying this one! Thank you mama for a great recipe. Made and reviewed for the Please Review My Recipe tag game.
