Nanny's Famous Meatloaf

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by bridgettels

This is my grandmother's meatloaf recipe that I've added a little extras to. It has been a hit with all of my friends as well as my husband's family. Though I'm not a big fan of meatloaf myself, I'm told this is the best there is!

this was really good. I used Emeril's Creole Seasoning #22089 instead of Tony Chachere's, and soy sauce instead of Dale's Steak Seasoning. The only problem I had was with the meatloaf crumbling when being cut.
