I don't usually watch cooking shows. But I do watch Chow Ciaro, Chef Fabio Viviani, on Yahoo.
Yesterday he made Grandma's Meatloaf.
I didn't have all the ingredients he used. I had to improvise with the ingredients I had on hand. This is the recipe...and WOW it's really really good.
I am not a tomato sauce or ketchup fan when it comes to meatloaf. So there is none in this recipe.
