The question Marisa asked wasn't answered as I clieked on the green button for the full recipe. It clearly states it is 4 servings but in the instruction it states to cut into 6 slices, which makes it confusing what a serving size it.

Hi! I’ve made this meatloaf a few times and I love it!! My question is about serving size. In the directions it states to cut into 6 pieces, but you have 4 as serving size. So is the serving 4 or 6? This would help me out. Thank you!

It’s not really a recipe if you only give the ingredients. How long do I cook it? At what heat? I need this information to make this “recipe”
