Meatloaf is one of my favorite comfort foods. I love trying meatloaf recipes for different flavors and variety. Well, this is one meatloaf recipe that will be making a repeat performance. My, was it good. I made two changes to the recipe. I used ground round instead of lean ground beef. The ground round was on sale and sometimes being economical is more important to me. I also used 2 whole eggs instead of just the egg whites that the recipe called for. Again, I didn't want to waste the eggs plus I think it gave it a good flavor. Pair it up with some mashed potatoes and vegetables and your family will enjoy a homey, comfy, satisfying dinner.
