Make-A-Meal-Of-It Meatloaf

"From a cookbook for beginners that I was going to throw out, Ha! I pulled out a few recipes that sounded worth saving now that I'm past toast and boiling water! This was different sounding with veggies around the mound of meatloaf. The book states that you might want to try layering 2 strips of uncooked bacon across the top of the meat loaf before you cook it as a variation. Goes well with tossed salad or cole slaw."

  1. This is a very good meat loaf. I did sub beef broth for the milk. {out of milk} I put in whole carrots, cut potatoes in half and threw in a few onions.and poured the rest of the broth over. I never thought about doing this with meat loaf.What a easy dinner that every one enjoyed. Thanks, Oolala


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
