Several years ago "Taste Of Home" magazine had a contest for meatloaf recipes. The winning recipe was to be added to the menu in their famous restaurant. This recipe was the winner, and it was HIGHLY praised. I haven't tried it yet, mainly because I always forget to buy the Madeira wine, for the sauce. It is a Wellington recipe, and sounds so good! If you try it please let me know how you like it!
