Papa K’s Meatloaf!!

15 Comments

So last year my friend Paul and I went to Pittsburgh to visit his family, we had a great time with his Dad as I call him “Papa Kovac”.

The first night when we got there Papa K made us dinner his famous Meatloaf, Haluski and Asparagus 🙂

The meal was so Delicious!!! Loved it all but I got his Meatloaf recipe and I made it myself 🙂

  1. I love meatloaf, Papa K’s looks fabulous. Just like you I cook a little bit to test for seasoning and a BIG YES to Heinz ketchup, it’s a must, I can’t have meatloaf without it. Lots of it too!!!
