Who says meat loaf has to bake in the oven for hours? For this convenient recipe, all you need is your stovetop and 30 minutes. It’s a quick, simple dish to make for one or two people. —Emily Sund, Geneseo, Illinois.

"This was a really good meatloaf recipe. I doubled it to feed our family of 4. Instead of salt I used about 1/2 T of Montreal steak seasoning in the loaves. I also used the steak seasoning in the tomato gravy to taste."

"This is an excellent and easy recipe, When the meat loaves were done, I put a slice of provolone cheese and dried parsley on top and left covered in the pan until cheese melted. I made these with the parmesan peas and rice (for 2). Thanks for a great recipe!"
