Copycat Cracker Barrel Meatloaf

Copycat Cracker Barrel Meatloaf

This is great meatloaf. It has the perfect balance of texture and flavor. It’s not crazy different than what grandma would make. It’s old school and it’s incredibly great. Great on a plate sliced or on bread as a meatloaf sandwich. You can’t beat it.
