I first tried this savory meat loaf recipe more than 30 years ago after seeing it demonstrated on a local TV cooking program. Since then, I've served it time and again to family and guests. The flavorful stuffing sets it apart from the ordinary.

In a large bowl, beat eggs, milk, ketchup, salt and pepper. Add beef and mix well. Pat half of the meat mixture into a greased 9x5-in. loaf pan; set aside.
For stuffing, saute the mushrooms and onion in butter until tender, about 3 minutes. Add bread crumbs, parsley, thyme, salt and pepper; saute until crumbs are lightly browned. Spoon over meat layer; cover with remaining meat mixture and press down gently. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a thermometer reads 160°, draining fat as necessary.
