Who says meat loaf has to bake in the oven for hours? For this convenient recipe, all you need is your stovetop and 30 minutes. It’s a quick, simple dish to make for one or two people. —Emily Sund, Geneseo, Illinois.
"Oven-roasted tomato sauce is a nice addition to this traditional meat loaf," says Joan Airey, a grain and cattle farmer from Rivers, Manitoba. "To bake it, I line my broiler pan with foil, with holes poked in so the fat drains through. It browns beautifully."
Meat loaf gets dressed up for company with this savory recipe. The ground meat is well seasoned with curry powder, allspice, green onion and thyme. And the potato coating adds a special touch.
