French Market Meatloaf


I forget where this recipe comes from but it is not mine.  I like it a lot though and thought if would be a great way for someone to learn to make a really good meatloaf.  Usually I just throw the ingredients together but that is only because I’ve been cooking meatloaf for many, many years.  The oats can be omitted and it will be fine.  I used organic, grain-fed, free-range beef so it was pretty dense but not in a bad way at all.  We watch for the organic meats to go on sale then we snatch them up and freeze them for use at a later time.  This is an easy recipe that anyone can make and will impress both friend and foe.
