Stuffing Meatloaf

Stuffing Meatloaf

Meatloaf is an American classic, and is something that many people list as a comfort food.  In our household, meatloaf is something that’s reserved for Fall and Winter meals when I don’t mind turning on the oven.  This recipe for stuffing meatloaf is different from our previous meatloaf recipe.  This version gets the majority of the seasoning from a package of corn bread stuffing mix that’s used as the breading in the meatloaf.      This recipe for stuffing meatloaf is easy to prepare, and goes great with cauliflower mashed potatoes and garlic green beans.
