I see the local firemen at the grocery store all the time shopping together. It always makes me smile. I'm going to ask them next time if they make this recipe!
This is definitely a hearty meal. 😋

We love meatloaf. I'm trying this with ground turkey. Hope the firefighters don't mind! #yum

No, not in this recipe. But if you like adding eggs to your meatloaf, you certainly could add one or two.
Deborah Mand
Sounds good but I would also add 1 egg.😚
