Not only is this my favorite meat loaf recipe, it is also my sisters , and her family favorite also, my nephew never liked meatloaf till my sister made this version from my cookbook. He has been hooked on it every since. We all love it, and when I make it, I double the recipe and make 2 to have for later. I also like to add that HEINZ is the ONLY CATSUP WE USE IN OUR HOUSEHOLD. Therefore it is what I use when making this recipe, some how the other brands do not measure up to the quality or taste of this one, just a personal opinion.
