“I got this from Ellie Krieger's cookbook The Food You Crave. I absolutely love this meatloaf, and so does my family. It may seem kind of mushy in the process of making, but after cooking it holds up well. The sauce is good too, and we never eat meatloaf with sauce. This meatloaf is nice, tender, and moist, and the family didn't miss the ground beef! I made this as "meatballs" or mini-meatloaves for a demonstration I gave to the elderly on heart healthy recipes, and they gobbled them up! Many asked for the recipe - I'm glad a printed out a few dozen copies! A great alternative to the regular ground beef variation.”
