Meatloaf-an Oldtime Favorite

Meatloaf is often the butt of many jokes, but in reality, it is a very tasty dinner if prepared correctly. I have been using this recipe for years and it has never failed me.

The best thing about meatloaf: there is no problem getting rid of the leftovers. They make perfect sandwiches, especially when topped with a hot pepper relish.

The leftovers can also be chopped up and added to your favorite tomato sauce and served over pasta, tortellini, or any pasta concoction desired. Best of all, it is easy to make and is perfect when accompanied with au gratin potatoes and a favorite vegetable.

I love it served with a baked yam or sweet potato. What is not to love about this comfort food? Substitute the beef for ground turkey. Still delicious!! For something a little extra special, make the meat mixture, put it out in a rectangle, sprinkle with chopped spinach that has been squeezed out, and roll it up.

Put in the dish and top with a tomato sauce, and bake the same as below! Try topping it with a couple of slices of bacon. Very tasty. Very nice. Mmmm.
