My mother never used a recipe when making meatloaf so I never had one to go by when I grew up. I found this recipe in a magazine at least 35 yrs ago and have used it ever since. In fact, I don't actually use the recipe any more... since it's memorized. Recently, my son asked for the recipe so I suppose I need to enter this in the db for future reference. This is comfort food around here... served with either mashed potatoes or rice, gravy, and peas & carrots. Also makes the best meatloaf sandwiches!
