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 house wine of the south). Hope y'all enjoy this amazing meat loaf!
