Being a Midwesterner born and bred, I (Heather) have had more than my fair share of meatloaf. As a child, I ordered open-faced meatloaf sandwiches every single time I went to my grandparents' diner. My grandpa said it was going to come out of my ears! :-) This recipe from Food & Wine magazine (Feb 1989, p. 131-132)is by far my favorite. The flavors are well balanced, and the oats redeem this fat-laden dish with a whole grain.
