This homemade meatloaf makes a perfect family dinner served with mashed potatoes and a side of veggies!
When I lived in Germany, there was something we ate on occasion called “Meat Cake” that was just incredible. It was almost like bologna, and definitely not clean. But M.A.N. was it good!
I was naïve enough to think I could make it myself, and since I had my own little kitchen in my part of the house, I set out to give it a shot. Sadly, I never got close. But what I did figure out, is one yummy recipe for meat loaf! This is one of those recipes that will be passed down through the generations of my family. It’s just plain good.
