A wonderful meatloaf and tomato gravy recipe! I used seasoned breadcrumbs and didnt add the kosher salt for the meatloaf. The gravy I used chicken broth instead of the chicken base dissolved in water. Took this to my sister's when she came home from the hospital with my nephew and served with your garlic potatoes. Thank you again for another wonderful recipe!
My husband grew up rather poor so when his mother made meatloaf for dinner, she would literally put all the leftovers in the meatloaf and would call it Meatloaf con corn!! That was what he was used to and that's what he wanted. After several failed attempts and raising the white flag, I convinced him to try this recipe which wasn't easy, he is a hard sell. The rest is history because now he wants the "meatloaf with tomato gravy" once a week. If I can sell it to my husband and have him love it, then so can anyone else!! Once you try it, you will fall in love with it!!
