This recipe comes from one of my favorite uncles who had a small fast food shop in the VFW Bowling Alley here in Houma. Unfortuantely Uncle Percy and the old bowling alley don't remain on this earth anymore. As a teenager I used to help out during Summer vacations. He would let me help him make his scrumptious meat loaf mix. This is his recipe for that special meat loaf that he made daily, and he used it to serve up the best meat loaf sandwich I have ever eaten. I make it today for my family, with a side of mashed potatoes and gravy. I have to admit though, that I love the leftovers for a good ole' meat loaf sandwich a day or two later. Hope you enjoy!
