This is a really great, different way to serve meatloaf and the flavors are really great! I got this from Rachael Ray's 30 Minute Meals. We really loved it!

Not much to say about this recp other than what's been said. They are delicious. My SO craves them from time to time. I minus out the salsa because we didn't care for the flavor after tasting the first time without. If you go on the Food Network site, there is smashed potatoes recp that goes with this from Ray's show. I was a a staunch gravy person until I had those. Very good together.

We saw RR make these last week, and we just had to try them. I used a mix of ground sirloin and ground pork, left out the celery and salsa. We loved them. It's such a snap to make and they cook much faster than traditional meatloaf. Thanks!

Yum! I tweaked this recipe by using ground turkey breast, egg substitute, and, because I had no BBQ sauce, a mixture of ketchup and salsa for the BBQ and salsa. Turned out very good, although they were a bit dry around the edges--probably wouldn't happen with ground sirloin. All in all, tasty and lower in fat. Thanks!
