    JT'sMom's Note:

    This is Emeril's Father's Meatloaf recipe. It was in "Martha Stewart's Everyday Food" Emeril says, "This remains the gold standard against which I judge meatloaves to this very day".COOKS NOTE: If you cannot find Emeril's Creole Seasoning in the store or prefer to make your own, use Emeril's Creole Seasoning recipe here on Zaar.
