This is my old roommates recipe - we used to fix this all the time. It's a tasty, one dish dinner. The "crust" is a "meatloaf" mixture.

This is an old old recipe, My grandmother use to make this back in the late 40's early 50's , My Mom use to fix this when I was growing up in the 60's and 70's, I fix it for my family and now my Daughter makes it for her fiance. obviously it's a family favorite. The only thing different from this recipe posted here is that my grandma's recipe called for oatmeal in place of breadcrumbs.
