"My husband, Wayne, asks for this meat loaf all the time," reports Edna Lauderdale of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. "We like it spicy, so we use hot sausage rather than mild. Slices are terrific drizzled with ketchup, served with mashed potatoes and gravy, or in meat loaf sandwiches the next day."
We love to take slices of this tasty loaf to the field during harvest season---I either bake it or cook it up quickly in the microwave---it's a real blessing during our busiest time of year.—Irene Knodel, Golden Prairie, Saskatchewan
When I make meat loaf, I usually just mix together whatever I have on hand. One time I added leftover kidney beans I had in the fridge, and my family loved the meat loaf's soft texture. Now it's our favorite.

It's fun to make miniature meat loaves instead of one big loaf...plus, they cook up quickly in a skillet rather than in the oven. This recipe is one of my old standbys for a speedy supper. —Paula Martin, Paxinos, Pennsylvania
Many people cringe when they hear the term "meat loaf", but it's one of my favorite foods that Mom made while I was growing up. I love the ketchup topping, and the loaf freezes well.
