  • About This Recipe

    “This an adopted recipe and I’m happy to say I made it and it’s 5* all the way. One of the best meatloaves I’ve ever made. I halved the recipe for the 2 of us but next time I will made it all and freeze 1/2. I used Ketchup instead of soy sauce and left out the fines herbes, I don’t have any. I didn’t have fresh mushrooms so I used canned.I baked to 160* on my thermometer and it took 1/2 hour. It was very moist and tasty, I don’t understand how it sat on ‘zaar for over 5 years and no one tried it. Very, very good.”
