“Lot's of meatloaf recipes out there, but what makes this one different is the brown sugar/soy sauce glaze that cooks over the top. This is my mom's recipe and I haven't found one better than hers. I had submitted it to the local newspaper a couple of years ago. Yesterday I ran into a lady and after the introductions she asked me if I was the one who had submitted a meatloaf recipe to the paper a few years back. I was stunned that she would associate a stranger with a recipe. Anyway she said that their family has really enjoyed it and they have given the recipe to all of their friends and they all love it. Wow, so I thought I would submit this one more meatloaf recipe so I coud spread the joy. Ha!”
