Roxygirl in Colorado's Note:
This meatloaf is from the Chez Melange Restaurant in Redondo Beach, CA., and is definitely worth the extra steps. It has a wonderful mellow blend of flavors that makes it really taste like it came from a restaurant. It's unusual in that in doesn't use bread crumbs as a filler and this was done for the texture, years before the "low carb craze." I've frozen it both cooked and uncooked, and texture does not suffer.
