I found this recipe in a booklet that came with my new Hotpoint stove that my parents purchased in 1950. Mom tried the recipe and it has been a family favorite since. I usually serve meat loaf with baked potatoes and we also enjoy cold slices for sandwiches.
WITH this recipe, we can have a hearty meat loaf dinner without leftovers. That delights both my husband and me. He never liked the creative ways I used up leftover meat loaf!

A new twist on an old favorite is this marvelous meat loaf from Brenda Biron's kitchen in Sydney, Nova Scotia. A hearty ham and cheese filling is rolled up inside ground beef. Potatoes and carrots baked alongside make it a hearty one-dish meal.
“Now that you have so many tasty meatloaf recipes, how do you liven up leftover meatloaf? This great recipe is the answer! If you like Rueben sandwiches, you'll love this new take on an old favorite.” -Kimberley Johnson of Englewood, Colorado
"The brown sugar glaze on this meat loaf is what makes it special at any big gathering," says Dorothy Hoffmann of Wheatland, North Dakota. "We usually serve it with baked potatoes, coleslaw, green beans, buns and butter, with cake and coffee for dessert."
