DEAR SOS: While on business in Seattle I had a delicious meatloaf at Duke's Chowderhouse. Is it possible to obtain the recipe?


DEAR M.L.: Duke's turned in a quantity-size recipe, which we converted into a home-size recipe for six. We hope it serves your purpose. At Duke's, the dish is generally served with mashed red potatoes.
