I got this recipe from Food Network's "Ten Dollar Dinner". I have tried numerous meatloaf recipes and this is the first one that does not require some sort of sauce to be poured all over the top to remain moist. It is very flavorful and very moist. My family really enjoyed this version of meatloaf and I have put it on my repeat list.
