This is a recipe my mother found in a German magazine back in the 1950's. It has been a family favorite ever since. I have passed it on to my kids so that they can make it for their families. It's a German style meatloaf. I still make this at least once or twice a month especially when I see a nice cauliflower in the produce department at my local grocery store. German Comfort Food? You decide!
