This is my grandmother's recipe for meatloaf. It's the only kind of meatloaf I will eat. I love to make meatloaf sandwiches with it the next day - they are even good cold.

This is a good technique recipe. I liked it! Made a change or two, using a mix of beef, veal and pork, and adding a suggestion of brown sugar to sweeten it a bit, but I do like the tomato sauce and oatmeal, which gives you that old time "comfort food" taste and texture.
