Miss Mary Bobo’s Boarding House Meat Loaf

6th Mar 2013

As a newlywed, this is one of the first recipes I ever made. My husband loved it and raved about it, and I felt like I had found a million dollar recipe!  This is from the “Jack Daniel’s – The Spirit of Tennessee Cookbook”.  It is truly a wonderful cookbook – full of traditional, southern recipes as well as fascinating stories of the people and culture of middle Tennessee.  If you can find a copy, I highly recommend it!JackDanielsCookbook
