This is Just how I've always made. I don't like the 3 meat mix .. the veal I can handle but not a fan with the pork added in. My kids were the same way. The manboys aka son's would request meatloaf time to time..And my dad "shhh don't tell your mother I like it better" Just good ol comfort food. And there's just something about guys and meatloaf. Haven't met one that didn't ask for it at some point lol
