MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 18, 2014

Very good, I did not make the rectangle and sprinkle with cheese , I just put half of the meatloaf mixture in the pan, put my cheese in the middle and topped with remaining meat. Probably not as fancy as the rolled up version, but the taste should be the same and much easier!I also used the spicy V-8 juice to give it a little extra kick.
