Tasty Thursday – Mom’s Meat Loaf

It was cold in Georgia not too long ago, believe it or not.  When it’s cold out, I want comfort food.  Warm, tasty, and not always healthy foods is perfect such as macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes.  I decided to go with Mom’s Meat Loaf from 50’s Prime Time Cafe at Disney Hollywood Studios.

I have never eaten at this restaurant, but read good things about their meatloaf.  I usually make Turkey Meatloaf but decided to give this a go.  I knew it would have lots of flavor and not dry out with the combination of beef and pork, and it did not disappoint!  I love a meatloaf with a sweet glaze and the addition of the Dijon mustard gave it a little kick.  My wonderful host here at Diz Thru Brown Eyes even ate some (and if she hasn’t told you yet, she is a very picky eater).  She did end up picking out the red and green bell pepper but I wouldn’t expect anything less from her.

You don’t have to wait until next winter to make this meatloaf!  It would be great for a Sunday dinner or when company is coming over.  Don’t forget to come back next month to see what I made to accompany this main dish.  Enjoy!
