Cajun Meatloaf

A few days ago I had the urge to take a look at some of my older posts on my blog. I went back to when I first started blogging, and yikes, talk about some cringe worthy photos. I spotted this one and I felt that I needed to do this recipe justice and retake the photo. It’s still one of my favorite meatloaf recipes. I have tried several throughout the years and this one is still my favorite, and it is so easy!
