IT'S FUN to make miniature meat loaves instead of one big loaf...and they cook up quickly in a skillet rather than in the oven.
The unique combination of flavors gives the ground beef zip. This recipe is one of my old standbys for a speedy supper.

"I received the recipe for this moist meat loaf in my high school economics class," recalls Lisa Malone of Cordell, Oklahoma. "At the time, I made it for my mom and dad. Now I fix it for my husband and daughter. We all love it."
My mother always made this delicious dish when we had lots of company or we were going to a church dinner. She'd make two casseroles and save one in the freezer for another time.Jinger Newsome, Gainesville, Florida
My husband and I look forward to this dinner. The savory beef tucked inside tender acorn squash halves is a satisfying autumn combination. Plus, it's a lighter entree and very flavorful. Edna Lee, Greeley, Colorado
Alice Jarrell of Dexter, Missouri waited a long time to get this favorite recipebut it was well worth it. "I had eaten this soup countless times at a small restaurant in our town," she tells. "When the owner finally retired, he said I deserved the secret recipe and passed it along. Now, my family enjoys it at least once a month!"Alice Jarrell, Dexter, Missouri
I love cooking, but I'm not into fancy gourmet foods. I think it's more challenging to make delicious, down-home foods with ingredients easily found in the refrigerator and on my pantry shelves.Marjorie Carey, Alamosa, Colorado
