Ashley’s Meatloaf

Serves 6
If you're the average American kid growing up in suburbia in the late 80's and 90's, you likely had your fair share of Mom's meatloaf. The oft loathed food has become a hiss and a byword amongst many of today's youth. Truth be told, I could hardly stomach the stuff for years after one unfortunate incident during my mission. But that story is for another time.... Often people make the mistake of making more of a meat-BRICK than a meat-LOAF. It's not that hard to do. Then there's the flavor profile to contend with. It is not, contrary to common thinking, an easy food to master. I was delighted to learn, shortly after I got married, that my wife makes a pretty dang good meatloaf! For me, I think it's the topping she makes that makes this meal so good.
