“At present time (2012), this is a 207-year-old meatloaf recipe, that has been handed down through our family since my great-great-grandmother back in 1807. It may be older than this, but that's as far back as I can trace it. Originally it was made using deer meat, but I prefer using beef as did my Mother. Enjoy.”

I used to make this from an old cookbook years ago and lost the cookbook after several moves across the country. Really happy to find it here on Allrecipes. Thanks, Jason. It is, indeed, a wonderful meatloaf...

Tried this and Grandma was on to something with the apple! Has a different spin than the same old meatloaf. I know some Gaydos'es..

I made your recipe last weekend and it was awesome. I'm not sure how fine the onions, carrots and apple were suppose to be but I shredded mine in my food processor so they were still quite visible in the meatloaf. It stayed together well and had a great taste. Thanks for your recipe and this will be my go-to one for sure.
