My mom made a different meat loaf every week, when I was growing up, to find the one recipe are family would eat. After being subjected to this for years I came up with this recipe that has never failed to get rave reviews.

Made this for my Dad, a self-proclaimed "meatloaf connoisseur", yeaterday for his birthday. He wants me to make it for him again! We did do one of the suggestions by another reviewer. I substituted Mushroom Gravy mix for the Taco Seasoning and it was out of this world!!!

My family thought it was a good meatloaf as a change of pace . You could stand to delete the taco seasoning . I added 1 packet of mushroom gravy mix to the batch. Over all it was worth making and gave me ideas on improving my own meatloaf.

We did not care for this. It was just like a pile of taco meat.
