  • Summary

    My Dad makes the best meatloaf recipe and it’s easy and fast. He would shape it into shapes depending on the occasion. I remember one Valentine’s Day he made the meatloaf for our family in the shape of a heart. This is definitely a family favorite. Since you add the carrots & potatoes to the meatloaf pan, you have a complete meal in one pan! Also, you can pre-prep the meatloaf, cover it, put it in the fridge, and just cook it the next day when you’re ready to eat. Great make-ahead meal idea.
