My Best Meatloaf

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Messy Kitchen Maid

I hate meatloaf that is dry and hard. I spent probably 3 years in perfecting this recipe. It is moist and full of flavor! Very important to use meatloaf mix (pork, ground beef, veal) and not just ground beef. My son actually brags to his buddies about this meatloaf!

I made this exactly as written. This was a very good flavorful moist meatloaf. I don't usually like ketchup poured over but mixed with the tomato sauce it was a nice addition. I did have a ton of grease come out of it though (I usually just use a leaner ground beef and not the meatloaf mix)so I just poured it off. It was not done at 40 minutes, I would increase the temperature to 375 and/or adjust the cook time. I would use this recipe again, but with the beef only and adjusted cooking time/temp. Thanks for another good meatloaf recipe!
