    I’m not a big fan of meatloaf, so I was hesitant to try this recipe, but I was looking for something different to add to our menu.It’s definitely something different than we usually eat, and M4M recipes are usually spot on with the seasonings and a lot of flavor, so I thought it was worth a shot. This was so easy and so delicious. I had all the pantry ingredients already on hand. I did leave the bread out. I’m gluten-free, and GF bread is so expensive, I didn’t want to use any for this so I took my chances. It came out fine. I’ll definitely be making this again.

      I forgot to add that there were no leftovers. My 17yo finished every bit of the meatloaf the night I made it. He’s a hearty eater, but if he doesn’t like something, he won’t eat extra helpings.
