Nicole's Marvelous Meatloaf

Nicole Khairullah


This meatloaf is super yummy and moist. I use a square baking dish so that the meatloaf cooks more evenly and there are more “crusty” parts around the edges and on top. It’s great with mashed potatoes and gravy and a green salad for dinner or during the summer months, I make this early in the morning so I don’t have to heat up my kitchen during the hot of the day; then we have another option for sandwiches other than your basic lunch meats. So Yummy!!!
