Personal Notes:
I would guess that Mom didn't have a recipe for meat loaf - it was all from memory. This recipe, I believe, is close to how she made it. I know that she used oatmeal as a filler. She also added an egg or two, as do I even though they aren't listed in the ingredients. This recipe is very flexible, sometimes I use spicy ground sausage (or other ground meats) for half or the meat. You can also add peppers (sweet or hot), or celery. The last time I made this, I rinsed out the mostly empty catsup and BBQ sauce bottles from the fridge and added before mixing the ingredients. So, experiment, that's part of cooking!
