“Dip leftover slices of meat loaf into beaten egg, then coat with bread crumbs,” suggests Joan B. of Lisbon, Connecticut. “Fry in butter on both sides until hot and golden. They taste like beef cutlets!”
My grandmother gave me this recipe many years ago. The buttery flavor of the crushed crackers is what gives this meat loaf the special taste that our family says is best!—Etta Winter, Pavilion, New York
The colorful vegetables give this loaf a festive look—and they add so much goodness! Baking it in a casserole gives my meat loaf a unique shape, too, just for something a little different. Our family likes mashed potatoes, soup or salad and biscuits with it.—Audrey Armour, Thamesford, Ontario
Mom made this scrumptious main dish frequently when I was growing up. When I first met my husband, he wasn't fond of meat loaf. This is the first meal I prepared for him, and now he requests it often.
