This is an old family recipe, my grandmother got it from her youngest sister Grace, I am not sure about the year... but it was before I was born.

This is a moist meat loaf and has a great flavor.

Grandma always served this with corn, peas or green beans and mashed potatoes with a tomato gravy or a brown gravy.
