"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."
This recipe is a nice way to add vegetables to your diet...they add color, flavor and nutrition. Chili sauce makes a pretty and tasty topping for the single-serving loaf.—Lethea Weber, Newport, Arkansas
