I'll always be thankful for the help my mother-in-law gave me when I first moved out to the farm. The "sure-to-please" recipes made a big adjustment easier. After all, dinnertime is often the only time a farm family can spend together...the meals had better turn out! Thanks to recipes like this one, my meals have been a "hit" much more often than a "miss."—Ruth Tacoma, Falmouth, Michigan

"My family loved it. The cornflakes , mushrooms and cheese along with the pizza sauce made it taste like a pizza without the crust. I will definately make it again when I want something a little different from your standard meatloaf!"
