My Take on Mom's Meat Loaf Recipe

My Take on Mom's Meat Loaf Recipe

Here's a lower-in-fat-and-salt take on my mother's original recipe. I substituted fresh ingredients like garlic, mushrooms and onions for dried onion soup mix and garlic powder, etc. It's still dense, hearty and tastes like home. —Brenda Moehringer, Gansevoort, New York
