“For my meat loaf, I add bulk Italian sausage to the hamburger and substitute seasoned bread crumbs for regular dry bread crumbs,” says Lotte Washburn of Sebring, Florida. “It gives the meat a little zing.”
This great-tasting meat loaf from Connie Staal of Greenbrier, Arkansas, is sure to be a family favorite. It's moist, tender and chock-full of green pepper, onion and zesty tomato flavor! Why not make two? Tuck one in the oven for supper, the other in the freezer for another night.
Here's a lower-in-fat-and-salt take on my mother's original recipe. I substituted fresh ingredients like garlic, mushrooms and onions for dried onion soup mix and garlic powder, etc. It's still dense, hearty and tastes like home. —Brenda Moehringer, Gansevoort, New York
