When I was a kid something I heard about but never tried was meatloaf, either from t.v. or from the kids at school. I always got the notion that meatloaf wasn’t that great from the reaction I would see, when the mom would tell the kids that’s what was for dinner, but that didn’t stop me from wanting me to try it. This recipe really is moist and delicious, I always get asked for it, when meatloaf tastes this good, it actually gets requested for dinner.
As for the sweet potato mash its my moms way of making it, its half white and half sweet, makes a nice balance or as she says, Swedish style.
