I used to have a catering business, and my specialty was comfort food. I once needed a gluten-free meatloaf and my clients went nuts over this. I often use an 8x8 pan or a loaf pan, but a muffin tin really cuts the cooking time. —Vangie Panagotopulos, Moorestown, New Jersey
"My husband is on a low-fat diet, so I try to make dishes that are lower in fat, sugar and salt but still have flavor," offers Linda Begley of Stoutsville, Missouri. Her easy-to-fix meat loaf, topped with slices of tomato, is tender, tasty and cuts nicely.
Being one-time caterers, my husband and I were asked to supervise our church's youth group suppers. This is the recipe I prepared for Greek Night. It was a hit with everyone. Willa Fershee, Corunna, Indiana
I COULD have called this recipe "Busy Lady's Meat Loaf". It's quick to prepare and you just thaw, heat and serve the second loaf.
This is an original recipe. I enjoy creating my own. When our son was growing up, he'd ask, "Is this one of your originals or did it come from a cookbook?" —Bonnie Baumgardner
