This is a wonderful recipe to use when you have leftover meatloaf. Instead of a meatloaf sandwich I make this delicious dish that reminds me of Chicken Parmesan.—Laddie Nichols, Lakeside, Arizona

"I didn't have saltines so I used bread crumbs. Turned out okay. Will try to dress it up some next time."

"I love this! It's so quick and easy, and is a whole new way to serve leftover meatloaf! I changed it up a little by sprinkling on Italian seasoning, and, after it was fried, topping it with mozzarella slices and popping it into the toaster oven until the cheese melted. It was heaven! I'll definitely make this again and again."
