My husband got this recipe from a friend of his. His mother got it from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook in the 60's. We have this meal about once a month and is a perfect Sunday dinner.

Made this for Spring PAC 2014 and I only used two eggs a little less milk and breadcrumbs. I used sharp cheddar cheese I cut into chunks but not the amount listed. DH enjoyed the meatloaf and I liked it but one I would make often with the cheese. Thank you for posting.
