“Delicious meatloaf! This is now my favorite way of making this dish. My hubby doesn't usually like meatloaf, but "loves" this one. Wonderful texture - great flavor, try it, you will love it. I tried this after a neighbor gave me a recipe, I didn't have 3 of the ingredients so I improvised - the new version is lots better than the original!”
