Grated carrots and cheese add a hint of color and good taste to this nourishing, homey loaf. And my family always looks forward to meatloaf sandwiches the next day! —Sandy Etelamaki, Ishpeming, Michigan
Many people cringe when they hear the term "meat loaf", but it's one of my favorite foods that Mom made while I was growing up. I love the ketchup topping, and the loaf freezes well.
