A classic meatloaf that really hits the spot

I’m a huge fan of nostalgic foods and meatloaf is definitely one of them. Although, it’s funny because I personally never ate it as a kid (it’s just not Polish enough), but making this recipe still reminds me of childhood. I guess it’s from all the American references in most movies that does it for me.

This recipe tastes just like nostalgia and is such a great comforting Sunday meal. Pair it with whatever sides you like and you have yourself a delicious meal to share with friends and/or family.



It doesn't get more nostalgic than this classic meatloaf.
