This recipe was one of my mother's first real recipes when she was married in 1952. It has been passed down through the family ever since. I think she got it either from a cooking school, or as an insert in a baking pan.

    -Halfway through the baking time, I slice down the center of the meatloaf and turn each half, which helps the loaf to cook thoroughly.-

    This can easily be doubled, for a larger family. But don't expect the leftovers to last long in the fridge-this is even good cold!
