This first was Old Fashioned Meatloaf from Wives with Knives. This was very, very good and may just be my new basic meatloaf recipe. I followed the suggestion for reducing the milk to 1/2 cup. When I serve mashed potatoes with meatloaf, we like a can of condensed tomato soup poured over the meatloaf halfway through the baking time. This makes a nice tomato gravy and is something that my mother did when I was a kid. I did not use the topping in the recipe.
I actually made this recipe twice. The second time I added Italian seasonings, 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese, and topped the meatloaf with some leftover pizza sauce I had on hand. It was very good that way, too.
Both meatloaves sliced wonderfully so would be great for sandwiches. I loved this as some meatloaves I have tried have fallen apart when they were sliced.
As I said, both are keeper recipes that I will make often. Thanks, Cathy and Marsha for sharing two wonderful recipes that you found on the blogs.
