I love Meat Loaf. It was one of my favorite meals when I was a child; and still is as an adult.. The day you make it, the Meat Loaf is hot and moist and perfect with mashed potatoes. The next day the meat has chilled and consolidated. It’s perfect between two slices of rye bread slathered with catsup, lettuce and tomato. YUM!
