"This recipe is great everybody loves it. I used crushed crackers instead of old-fashioned oats and left out the shredded cheese."

"I have made this several times and it has never been less than good. I like the extra fiber the oatmeal gives it."

"I've made this several times a year - ever since it first published in 1998. I usually freeze the 2nd loaf, but also use it when making a "crisis" meal for someone else. We all like it, and the folks I've shared it with have all enjoyed it, too"
