"This is a gift for all occasions, especially when there is a loss in someone's family. The gift can be eaten right away, cold or heated. It can frozen and warmed for another day. It is a little spicy but very comforting. It is a perfect gift for a neighbor at Christmas. There will be tons of cooking, cakes and pies but no one thinks of giving a meat loaf which could be used for another day. Especially during the preparation of the holiday season, when everyone is happy but tired and weary."

"Very good! Quick and easy to put together. I skipped the salt because the olives have enough sodium. Did add dried parsley and black pepper. I used low fat milk didn`t want to open a can for just 1/4 cup. Loved the idea of cooling and giving as a gift.
God Bless! Thanks! Made for Craze-E-Contest Nov 2010"
"The theme of this Craze-E contest 2010 is GIFTS from Your Kitchen and you did a good job of mentioning this in your recipe (Chefs who did not, I just clicked on by.). Chili Chef, you also did a good job of incorporating some of the required contest ingredients listed, which sometimes is not an easy task. Overall it was a very good recipe and it can be used for serving a meatloaf on a plate with other vegetables or as an appetizer using the rye cocktail bread (see my photos). Further, I had a hard time finding the Neufchatel Cheese. That is, after Googling I assumed it would be in the gourmet cheese section of food markets. However, to my surprise it was in the regular dairy section next to the cream cheeses. Finally, if I had to make this recipe again I would consider using Cheddar Cheese and Italian bread crumbs as substitutes. Thanks for sharing this recipe with me and the other Craze-E contest Chefs."
