Best Meatloaf Ever

Elaine Douglas


This makes a very big meatloaf so there will be wonderful leftovers for sandwiches the next day if you have a small family. I rarely buy luncheon meats because of the chemicals used in the manufacture. This meatloaf is a good substitute for supermarket luncheon meats.
You can substitute whatever cheese you like.
Optional step after making the mixture: make a very small patty from a bit of the meatloaf mixture and cook it in a frying pan. Taste for seasoning. If it needs more salt or pepper, add the seasoning to the meatloaf mixture before putting it on the cooking sheet or loaf pan.
