Nancy J. Patrykus


A very good,plain ole simple,basic farm style meatloaf recipe.
I put this together one day when I was in a hurry....on the farm we were always busy.
It turned out to be a winner!! Sometimes the simplest recipe turns out to be the best!
My friends and family like it, so I thought you gals might give it a try....
This is from 1954 in Indiana.
