“This meatloaf has the best smell when being put together. While this wasn't my families favorite as yes it lacked flavor we loved how moist it was. I plann to try to add more flavor to this recipe. When I made this meatloaf I made it in a 6 quart crockpot which was just fine. I could only find and used a 28oz bag of potatoes. I also could only fine ranch and herb shake in bake. I got this recipe from Food Network. It's a Sandra Lee recipe.”
