    KateL's Note:

    The filling makes the meat loaf interesting, reminds me of a pastaless lasagna. It was yummy. Came from BH&G "New" Cookbook (1968). I used Whole Wheat Triscuits.

      This was great - I used 2% cottage cheese (didn't measure - but used the rest of the container) and my mushrooms were a 7 ounce can, otherwise made as directed. Served with mixed vegetables for a great and healthy dinner. Thanks for sharing!

      Made for PRMR! This was really good. I added some extra garlic for my taste and cut the cheese in half. The family enjoyed! Thanks

      This is truly the best meatloaf I ever had. I fixed it exactly the way it said on the direction and it came out perfect. I always liked cottage cheese but never had it on a cooked dish and thought about substituting it with ricotta cheese but I'm glad I didn't.
