A twist on meat loaf. Make-ahead meat loaves. This recipe could probably be used for OAMC successfully. This is a kid pleaser recipe.

Good weeknight meal, easy and enjoyed by the whole family. I topped with additional pasta sauce and baked, then served right away. But I do appreciate the make ahead directions. Would be great to keep in the freezer for a super quick meal. Served with roasted red potatoes and green salad. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
