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 delicious recipe for meatloaf! I've always made meatloaf in the oven, but this was a great alternative way to cook them. Simmering them in the sauce kept them nice and moist! I generally like more onion and "stuff" in my meatloaf, but this really suited my picky daughter. She ate it in record time! I served it with seasoned baked potatoes and peas. Yum!"

"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!"

"My boyfriend and I have found a new meatloaf! My mom's is always the best of course, but this one is quick and amazing! Very tasty! I did add some Montreal Steak Seasoning to the mix."
