“I got this from the Laura's beef site. It's the only ground beef that I buy and have always had really good luck with it. These little meatloaves are perfect. This says that it serves 6, but with a side salad and some green peas, my son and I were only able to eat 1 1/2 each before we were full. Turns out to be even better on a sandwich with some lettuce and mushrooms.”
