Cheeseburger Meat Loaf

 Cheeseburger Meat Loaf
I created this meat loaf one day when I wanted to make cheeseburgers—my husband's favorite—but it was too chilly to grill outside. I've served it numerous times since then, and it never fails to get rave reviews. Even your most finicky eater will enjoy this oven-baked main dish. And you'll appreciate the price—just 51¢ a serving. —Pa
