Meat Loaf Supper

A new twist on an old favorite is this marvelous meat loaf from Brenda Biron's kitchen in Sydney, Nova Scotia. A hearty ham and cheese filling is rolled up inside ground beef. Potatoes and carrots baked alongside make it a hearty one-dish meal.

    My sons liked this meatloaf. I used about 3 lbs of meat, but next time I would only increase the seasonings by 2-3 times. My potatoes and carrots were not done when the meat was, so next time I will cut them into small chunks. Frankly, I don't see how they can get done with the baking time given in the recipe. Maybe you'll have to parboil them first.
