I used to be scared of meat loaf but once I found that it didn't have to be a dry lump of meat served with ketchup, and that you can change it up with any variety of flavors you want, I'm becoming more of a fan. This yummy version smelled soooo good while it was cooking I couldn't wait to eat it, and it didn't disappoint.
