Now This is Meatloaf!

One of my very favorite dinners. This is my gramma's meatloaf, and the only one I'll eat. I do not accept any tomato products, chunks of veggies, hardboiled eggs or wild spices in meatloaf. If you need a meatloaf coated in ketchup this is not the one! Pure comfort food, and what could be better than leftover meatloaf in a sandwich.

Meatloaf was moist and delicious, it also held together well when slicing. I added 1/2 cup finely chopped bell pepper, 1 clove minced garlic, 1 T Worchestershire sauce, and 1 T spicy mustard. I made a packet of Knorr brown gravy and served over meatloaf. I think I have now found my perfect meatloaf! Thanks for posting ReeLani

Very nice meatloaf, it reminds me of my grandmother's. This tasted really good, and as others have mentioned the meatloaf cuts and holds together well too. I reduced the milk to 3/4 C and used about 1 tsp of the poultry seasoning. I will make this again. Thx.

Loved it! I actually liked the absense of tomato products. Most of my other meatloafs have ketchup and/or tomato soup. It was plain, but that's what I liked. It went great with mashed potatoes and brown gravy. It made even better meatloaf sandwiches! Great recipe!!!
