Meat Loaf Pie
Juanita Rocha of San Angelo, Texas easily whips up this meaty pie with instant mashed potatoes, which cuts down the prep time but not the taste. "This recipe is very fast and easy to put together," she notes. "It's been a family favorite since 1069 and remains my children's most-asked-for meat loaf."
