Stop searching for a go-to meat loaf recipe. This is it! Your family will be delighted with this mixture of beef, pork and sauteed onion, with a sweet- and-tangy sauce baked onto the top. Cheese crackers are the secret ingredient in this one. —Simple & Delicious Test Kitchen
We Kansans are proud of our fine pork products, and this recipe provides a nice change from ordinary meat loaf. This is not just another ho-hum ham loaf, though-it's superb! The sour cream and seasonings make all the difference.
I ESPECIALLY like this recipe because it makes a nice meal for two without lots of leftovers.
The pork gives this meat loaf a moist, tasty, old-fashioned flavor—it's one of our favorite main dishes. —Kim McMurl

This recipe is a product of three different recipes and a little imagination. Even the picky eaters in my family enjoy slices of this meat loaf. It tastes like lasagna without the noodles. - Bobbie Croker, Omaha, Nebraska
I created this recipe when my children were young and "meat loaf shy". They loved the potato surprise inside and the sauce that has a mild zip. Occasionally, I tuck canned green beans in the center of the potatoes to create a one-dish meal.

Juanita Rocha of San Angelo, Texas easily whips up this meaty pie with instant mashed potatoes, which cuts down the prep time but not the taste. "This recipe is very fast and easy to put together," she notes. "It's been a family favorite since 1069 and remains my children's most-asked-for meat loaf."
