Just sat down to enjoy this meatloaf after my first try with the recipe. It is AMAZINGLY good. It is true that it takes a bit longer than most other meatloaf recipes, but the extra time is well worth it. This is destined to replace our old family meatloaf recipe!
I recommend this as a Saturday or Sunday recipe--both because it takes a bit longer than one has after getting home from work, but also because it yields lots of leftovers for the following week's lunches and/or tight-for-time dinners.
