The Butcher’s Wife’s Best-Ever Meatloaf

The Butcher’s Wife’s Best-Ever Meatloaf

There are a few things that make this meatloaf really, really great. One is the fresh breadcrumbs – four slices of white bread, no crusts, pulsed in your food processor, is just right. Sauteeing veggies before mixing up your ingredients keeps this meatloaf super moist and rich. Yes, it is one more pan to wash, but worth the effort.
