Cajun Meatloaf

cajun meatloaf

I’ve been trying to get this post up for a few days now, but I’m nursing a cold and therefore more tired than usual, and I’m having the worst writer’s block….so I’m just going to keep this one short and sweet! Meatloaf is one of our favorite comfort foods and this version has a Cajun twist. It’s packed with spices and onion, green pepper, and celery. It’s very tasty and filling and pretty healthy too – enjoy!
