This is another one of those recipes that I have clung onto for many years! This one is from one of my cooking gurus. Before trying this recipe I was never interested in trying meatloaf because of the way it has been portrayed in movies. It seemed that it was always a dry, tasteless lump of meat that always went hand in hand with very upset family members! Well this recipe definitely changed my perspective! This meatloaf is full of incredible flavour, and your senses will go crazy when the aromas start to fill your home! Because it is cooked with this thick, rich sauce, the meatloaf comes out beautifully moistened and bursting with flavour! Leftovers are amazing the next day on freshly buttered rolls. Enjoy! 🙂
