Lynn’s Meatloaf

This is a great “meat” loaf recipe from one of the Engine 2 Pilot Study participants, Lynn Jocelyn. Lynn brought this to the Engine 2 pot-luck awards banquet and it disappeared before everyone could get a bite. She graciously brought two loaves over for Jill and me one week after Kole was born.

This meatloaf is wonderful the next day pan-fried on whole-grain bread with mustard, pickles, and ketchup.
