Have you considered Holland House
Do you remember the school lunches years ago when we had fried chicken or meat loaf and mashed potatoes with homemade rolls? You could smell those rolls all a.m. while in class. I don't know who Tillie was, but she was one of the cooks who made the meat dishes at an elementary school when students had those kinds of lunches to look forward to. The sauce recipe makes quite a bit, so I often reduce it, but in keeping with the original recipe, I've stated it like it is. (Thankfully, it has been reduced to a family sized recipe.) My daughter-in-law didn't like meat loaf until she ate this one.
I LOVE the sauce in this recipe! We had a little extra left over, so spooned it over the slices on our plates... What a treat! Like Donna's daughter-in-law, I was never one to have been mistaken for the world's biggest meatloaf fan. Now, though, I do believe my colors have changed! Thanks, Donna.
