When I was a young woman and had moved away from home, my mother put together a recipe box with copies of all her recipes that I loved inside. It was a lovely and extremely useful Christmas gift. I have added to it over the years and still use many of those same recipes! One of the recipes was for her meatloaf. I still make this for my family and think of her everytime I do. I believe this makes one of the best savory meatloaves I've ever eaten. It make two loaves. I cook one and freeze the other to cook at a later date. It makes great cold meatloaf sandwishes, that is, if there's anything left over!
