Recipe by Cookinmomof3

My mother's been making this meatloaf forever an it tastes delicious!! The combination of the worcestershire sauce, ketchup and garlic are so flavorful that you'll be making this every week!!! Add more or less salt and pepper to your liking!! But don't leave out the GARLIC!!!

The taste was awesome, everyone loved it but next time I think I will try 2 lbs of ground beef and more bread crumbs. Thanks for a great tasting meatloaf!
