Claudia’s Meatloaf

Before I left home for the first time, I sat down with my mother’s recipe box and wrote down my favorite dishes.  The recipe below is all that was written on both sides of my mother’s 3 x 5 card. When my siblings got together to combine all of the recipes we saved, one of my sisters had a different variation our mother uses of this iconic 1950’s American staple.

Note: I have not made this dish this way in years, so I do not have any pictures of it.
