Mom's Amazing Meat Loaf

Elaine Bovender


Meat loaf is the ultimate comfort food. This meat loaf has always been a huge hit with my family or at potluck dinners when taken to share. It is very moist and juicy and tastes absolutely wonderful! I don't add green peppers to this recipe, because my family doesn't care for them, but you can certainly add them if you prefer. I like to serve this meat loaf with cream cheese mashed potatoes, green beans and lots of iced tea (the wine of the south). Hope y'all enjoy this amazing meat loaf!
