Do you have a collection of recipes that you haven’t made in a zillion years. It seems like with the social media sites and wonderful food bloggers out there we are always trying something new. Yesterday I decided to go through my recipe box and make an old time favourite, Sicilian Meatloaf. I have no idea where I got this recipe from as it was simply scribbled onto a recipe card. Can you believe we used to make a recipe that didn’t have a mouthwatering photo attached to it!
Enjoy this old time favorite Meatloaf recipe, an economical dish to feed the family, yet so delicious.
