Pot Roast Meat Loaf Recipe

Pot Roast Meat Loaf Recipe

If your taste buds call for pot roast but your pocketbook insists on ground beef—or you don't happen to have a roast on hand—here's the perfect solution! The vegetables take on the beefy goodness of the meat loaf's drippings—and save on cleanup, too, since they cook in the same dish. —Magdalene Fiske, La Farge, Wisconsin
