Layered Rueben Loaf

This meat loaf really captures the wonderful flavor of reuben sandwiches. When my family tires of regular meat loaf, I turn to this recipe from my niece. - Darlene Loudon, Creston, Iowa

    My husband said this was tasty and I agree. I made 1/2 this recipe and baked it in a 3 cup Pyrex casserole dish. My alterations threw the cook time off because the loaf was finished after 45 minutes. I'll definately make this recipe again.

    This is a particularly HUGE success for our family! Family members who are not crazy about sauerkraut even enjoy this recipe for SECONDS! Very easy to make, and is made as a regular item in our household! Definitely a MUST TRY recipe!
