Nana's Stuffed Meatloaf

My in-laws were here visiting in early July and I had the pleasure to not only get this recipe from my mother-in-law, but to get to eat it!   On more than one occasion my husband has raved about this meatloaf.  Now, after hearing about it for almost 8 years, I got to try it.  It is so delicious and really not hard to make.  I hope you'll try it, you won't be disappointed.
