"I used cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella, and American cheese slices instead of mozzarella."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 30, 2008

"After making this meat loaf recipe several times, I decided to try another. My family asked after tasting my newest effort, "Where's the ham?" They want and expect Marilyn's Meat Loaf, so I don't dare to make another type when my boys are home."
