Meat Loaf Question

How much ground beef is needed to make meatloaf for 20 senior people (not big appetites).


Cooking for a crowd of 10 or more people can be difficult unless you have the right recipes. The recipe below is what some people refer to as a crowd recipe. I went out on the internet and found the recipe for you seeing how I didn't already have a recipe for meatloaf that feeds 20 people.
