South Dakota Meat Loaf Makeover Recipe

South Dakota Meat Loaf Makeover Recipe

Our Test Kitchen took Lauree Buus' large meat loaf and turned it into five mini-loaves. They relied on the microwave for some quick cooking. The result was fantastic! The Rapid City, South Dakota cook can whip up her recipe even faster!
