This is a quick and easy Homestyle Meatloaf recipe that my dad used to make when we were kids. After he passed, I was going through a box of his things, and found an old notebook where he kept some of his favorite recipes. Inside was this gem of a recipe! While I am not sure if he came up with it himself or found it somewhere, I do know that it has always been a family favorite. Hopefully it will become a favorite of yours!
