Killen’s Meatloaf

This meatloaf from Killen’s in Houston Heights is inspired from Ronnie Killen’s grandmother, along with most of the recipes in his new comfort-driven restaurant. The secret behind this old school recipe is the simplicity of the ingredients, but more importantly the quality of the ingredients. The flavors will be sure to bring back memories of your own grandmother and make the whole family happy!
