Favorite Meat Loaf

Meat loaf is my all-time favorite dish to cook. One year, an aunt and I put together a cookbook that included over 50 variations of that hearty, old-fashioned main course.—Jim Hopkins, Whittier, California

    This recipe was really easy and really yummy. I agree with the person who wanted "more" and I'll probably add more spices, like black pepper, chipotle, red pepper, time. I did use Cilantro instead of parsley and I think that made it a little more flavorful. After draining, you could use the juices to make a gravy, I suppose; might be good!

    For some reason it just seemed too plain and I even added a green pepper to it. Not bad just not very flavorful.
