Reviews for Potato-Topped Chili Loaf
"This was VERY good! I used bread crumbs instead of cracker crumbs, but made it as written otherwise! My family loved it!"
"Loved this - replaced the ground beef with turkey and was still great!"
"Very good! We made this the other night and it will be a new family favorite. I drained the grease from the meatloaf before putting on the topping."
