I lovingly adopted this recipe from Zaar. After making it I adjusted the ingredients a bit to give it more flavor and appeal. It is an easy meal to put together and tastes pretty good as well. I served it with buttered egg noodles and steamed broccoli. Everyone enjoyed it.... Happy Cooking!

This is sooo good!! Tasted just like meatloaf without having to turn my oven on. I did have to add more water than the recipe calls for. I had either very lean hamburger or not very moist because the hamburger was really dry. Not the fault of the recipe. I didn't have Parmesan cheese, so I used Mozzarella cheese instead. I didn't put it under the broiler because the color didn't bother me. It melted just fine in the skillet. I sprinkled the cheese on top of the meat, put a lid on it and cooked it until the cheese melted. I had leftovers, so I made a meatloaf quesidella with it last nightI just added a couple of tablespoons of tomato soup to give it a little bit of moisture. It was really good!!! I love meatloaf, so I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for PAC Fall '08.

I hope that I am being fair - I would give it 2 for appearance and 4 for flavor. If I make this again I would after step 5 pour it into a baking dish sprinkle on the cheese and place it about 8" from the broiler to brown the cheese and give it a nicer appearance. The bottom was a lovely color so when I put it on the plate the appearance improved but looking at it in the pan when it was ready to serve it was a very bland color. I like the flavor. Thanks for adopting this recipe Cheryl

Meatloaf is one of my all time favorites but in the summer I hate to heat up the oven. This will satisfy my craving. I did change a few things to make it taste more like my meatloaf. Instead of the dehydrated onions I used fresh, chopped fine, a little more garlic and I dont like oats in meatloaf so I used cracker crumbs. I also topped the skillet with the parm cheese and for the kids, some shredded cheese. (My kids will eat anything with cheese on it)! I will make this again when I dont want to heat up the house. Thanx SISTA Cheryl!
