“I know, I know...there are a ton of meatloaf recipes out there (and I have made quite a few of them). But, once again, this just turns out to be my family's favorite. It is extraordinarily simple, yet very satisfying. For the soft bread crumbs, I generally run a few slices of bread through the food processor. Believe it or not, hot dog rolls work great too! I have also used the drippings and made a delicious gravy to serve alongside it.”
