This recipe is tried and true from my mom’s kitchen to yours. Using a combination of beef and pork with classic meatloaf flavors, it was always a family favorite. A tip to use leftovers is to make meatloaf sandwiches. As a kid, I looked forward to those treats. Leftovers can refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen.
