Mom's Favorite: Betty Crocker's Classic Fluffy Meatloaf

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Julesong

My mom has been using this recipe since she was married in the 50's and it's as good now as then. She still makes it for me when I visit. :) It's wonderful when first served, but is even better chilled... cold meatloaf sandwiches, mmm! A versatile recipe, you can easily alter it to your own tastes. Experiment and enjoy! :)

I recently had to give up my old Betty Crocker cookbook in my divorce as that was the only thing he wanted. He has good taste. :) Anyway, this is the ONLY meatloaf I make and I couldn't find the recipe on-line, UNTIL NOW!! Thanks SO much for posting this. I'm going to go make it right now!
