“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.
"Oven-roasted tomato sauce is a nice addition to this traditional meat loaf," says Joan Airey, a grain and cattle farmer from Rivers, Manitoba. "To bake it, I line my broiler pan with foil, with holes poked in so the fat drains through. It browns beautifully."
