Original Ann Landers Meatloaf

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by MARGO P.

This is the original version my mom handed down to me and has been one of my family staples since the 70s. I occasionally add other ingredients such as bell pepper or fresh onions, or top with bacon or cheese slice triangles. Sometimes I substitute saltine cracker crumbs to give it a different texture. My favorite part is meatloaf sandwiches from the leftovers.
