This is it Meatloaf

Carol Perricone


I used to make meatloaf different every time I made it. My family hated when I did that. So, one day I was reading the newspaper, found this recipe, and the writer said "once you make this recipe, you will never make another". It turned out to be true in my case. Everyone loves this recipe, and when I do make something different, I "get in trouble" for it. lol I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.
