This is definitely one of my favorite meat loaves. It is loaded with flavour. It took me quite a bit longer than 10 minutes to put it together but well worth the time. I only made 1/2 the recipe and the oven time took about 45 minutes. This meat loaf will be repeated many times.

Very tasty meatloaf Bea. I really loved the addition of the allspice. Thank you for sharing! Linda
