My husband goes wild for my meatloaf, but I don't know how healthy it is. The Taste of Home Test Kitchen experts slashed the calories and fat, but kept the original's tender and delicious qualities. —Jodie Mitchell, Denver, Pennsylvania
This is a tasty cross between meat loaf and pizza. Often, I divide it into two pans, bake one for me and freeze the other. That way, I'm ready for drop in company or potluck suppers. Tomato paste or spaghetti sauce can be substituted for ketchup in my meat pie. Cheese lovers might want to add mozzarella to the topping as well.—Judy Foye, Freeport, Maine
What could be more comforting to come home to than moist and tender homemade meat loaf? "This one retains its shape in the slow cooker and slices beautifully," reports Marna Heitz from Farley, Iowa. "Because potatoes and carrots cook along with it, the entire dinner is ready at the same time."
