Reviews for Cottage Cheese Meat Loaf
"I love this recipe. The cottage cheese and Parmesan cheese shake up the traditional recipes. Like to use shredded Parmesan!, not grated."
"I prefer meatloaf with bread crumbs instead of oats."
"I did not enjoy this at all. I thought it was too bland. I also didn't like the consistancy."
"Made it on the Weber grill...AWESOME! My husband and I ate the whole thing! Molded it into a round loaf and placed in shallow round cake pan befre placing on grill....indirect heat."
