Favorite Old Fashioned Meatloaf

70 mins (prep 20, cooking 50)
10 ingredients
1 servings
Makes a moist, delicious meatloaf that is firm and not crumbly--perfect for sandwiches the next day (if there are leftovers). It reheats well, too. The beef should be at or near room temperature when you make it; if it isn't, it will take longer to cook.
