Since I like to save time, this recipe makes enough for 2 meatloaves. I love to make something like this on a Sunday to have for the week. Perfect for a large family, or to bring to work for lunches. You can also wrap one well, and keep in freezer for about a month. If you don't have 2 loaf pans, do not fret. What I like to do for Tommy is to bake the second batch in greased muffin tins to create little toddler portions. ;) It's also a nice way to sneak in veggies. Chop up 1/4 cup shredded carrots, 1/2 onion, or shredded spinach.

1/2-1 cup veggie of choice, chopped or shredded

Options for veggies (A great option is to saute one or more of these in a pan with a small amount of grass fed butter before adding to the meat mixture.
