Reviews for Cheesy Meat Loaf Pie
"Very good! Would definately make it again! I used all cheddar (a little extra)"
"We make this often- it is tasty and simple to prepare. The oregano sprinkled on the top adds a nice zing of flavor."
"Making this for tonight supper with minor changes ~ adding oregano to beef mixture, leaving out garlic salt (using minced garlic instead). Also usiung leftover spag. sauce for ketchup. Adding mozzarella instead of parmesan cheese (personal preference)."
"I followed the directions exactly, but ended up having to cook it for an hour and it was still pink. I didn't have a meat thermometer to test the temperature, so maybe it is just supposed to be pink but is still done after 20 minutes? After cooking for an hour we decided to just go ahead and eat it, and it was very yummy...but I am still puzzled about the cook time."
"Super easy and very good. I do not like ketchup but it works well in this recipe. Next time I will try a mix of ketchup and pizza sauce."
"My family loves it and it doesn't take as long to bake as traditional recipes."
