I have been making the same meatloaf for years ... my family loves it. However, my son got married this summer to a lovely young lady that is allergic to dairy products ... and my meatloaf has lots of cheese in it. Scratch that! I tried this recipe a couple of weeks ago and it was delicious. None of us missed the cheese! I have never used breadcrumbs before ... always oatmeal. However, I loved the texture as well as the taste. It melts in your mouth!
