This recipe was given to me by my mother's friend when I was a newlywed. I was in a panic over what to serve to guests, and she suggested this. It was a big hit, and I've continued serving it for the past 40 years.
Try a twist on traditional meatloaf with this chicken version that begins in the food processor. Here, ketchup is replaced with an easy mushroom sauce for a more upscale topping. —Keri Schofield Lawson, Brea, California
THIS RECIPE has been in our family for 40 years! My four kids loved this dish growing up, and it's still their number one request when they come to dinner.
My husband's pet name for this is "great wads of dough"...but he eats every bit on his plate.

Meet the Cook: My mother-in-law gave me this recipe. It's her very favorite breakfast. We - my husband, our two sons (15 and 12) and I - also enjoy it for a light supper. Especially on a cold day, it's great with warm peach cobbler or bread pudding.

Meet the Cook: This is a nice recipe to whip up when you come home from church. I adapted it from one I saw in an old cookbook. It's a little different way to use herbs.

The addition of hot sauce zips up this cut of meat. It takes me back to spicy dinners I enjoyed as a child in the Southwest. I like to use the leftovers in different dishes-including barbecued beef sandwiches, quesadillas and burritos. —Carol Stevens, Basye, Virginia
For over 50 years, this elegant entree has graced my family's holiday table. The zesty stuffing with its nice nutty crunch complements the slices of moist duck, while the hint of orange in the gravy sets it apart.
