Just made this meatloaf for the millionth time and wanted to share my twist to this already fantastic recipe. I make everything just like the recipe, except, I cook the meatloaf 30 minutes and remove it from the oven. I leave the meatloaf in the pan and cut into slices. I pour the sauce over the meatloaf, making sure it gets between the slices. I return to the oven for another 30 minutes. I serve it with Paula's rosemary roasted potatoes and veggies. Our family's favorite meal! Thanks Paula.

This recipe is a classic example of why Paula is Queen of the Kitchen. This is probably the best meatloaf I have made the entire 22 years that I have been married! Meatloaf is my husband's favorite dish and I am constantly looking for new ones to try for him. This one is simply fantastic, tasty, beautiful..I could go on. My husband was still talking about this meatloaf 2 days after I made it. Oh, and cooking the meatloaf on bread to draw away the fat...Ingenious, Paula..simply ingenious!!

I am trying to find a meatloaf recipe. I had it once 6 years ago and I can't find the recipe anywhere. It was made by a polish/italian lady. It was called Boiled Meatloaf. I loved it so much. Can you help me? Gordon
