Family Classic Meatloaf

I am not a big fan of meatloaf but this recipe I found on Yahoo Food sounded different so I gave it a try: http://food.yahoo.com/recipes/kraft/90487/family-classic-meatloaf.

I altered the recipe a bit, however. I use one package of ground beef, (about a pound), and one package of ground turkey. I get very little grease this way and it's still very tender.

I also don't divide the ingredients, I mix them all together. I prefer brown gravy with my meatloaf anyway, (I usually make homemade mashed potatoes too), I don't like real tomatoey, (yes, that's a word because I just said so), tasting meatloaf or sauce.

That is a great idea about doing half beef and half turkey. I am not a huge meatloaf fan but my boys are so I try to make it often.

I like to make it the night before, cooked and all and then the next day, I like to cut a big peice off and grill it to give it that smoky flavor and girll marks and serve it on a roll.

Delish!

Take pics next time! I wanna see your food.

I'd post pics if I thought my food LOOKED good. The appearance of my food never justifies the taste. I may be a good cook, but you'd never guess by looking at it. I'm so ashamed. :/

this one sounds good, and I like the idea of mixing the meats. I'm going to try it in one of my next menu. :-}
