Family Favorite Meatloaf

You really can't deny the grandness of meatloaf, it's one of those dishes that has been around forever, and isn't going anywhere anytime soon. I've made many a meatloaf and up until now I've never had one that has stood out, or made a huge impression, until this one. I know these pictures are underwhelming, but this was SUCH a delicious meatloaf packed with so many mouthwatering flavors. It's also done with a beef, turkey blend which makes it less greasy and a lot lighter. I've never made a meatloaf with horseradish and Dijon mustard before, and I was a bit nervous because usually those flavors tend to overwhelm, but the amount was just enough to give it just a hint of sharpness, but not too much to repel the chill'ns! Our whole family loved this dish, I have zero leftovers to prove it!

My husband loves meatloaf - I once tried to hide veggies in there, but he got half way through and was like "is there f_ing carrots in here?"

And there always must be ketchup on too!

Thanks for sharing!
