Tired of meatloaf you say? Then wait until you taste this wonderful creation that a friend made for me a few years ago. I begged for the recipe. I admit, I have not ventured to make this myself because my family doesn't care for meatloaf, but I can certainly vouch for the outstanding taste.

I am not a meatloaf lover and I love this meatloaf. My husband does not like mushrooms so I left them out. The gravy is superb.
