I love these! I don't like meatloaf, but my family does so it's a good compromise. They take a little more effort than regular meatloaf but I think it's worth it. I make them with jar spaghetti sauce instead of pizza sauce, then I serve them with spaghetti noodles and the leftover sauce.
Tired of the same, old meatloaf? Surprise the family with a new twist on this classic dish with Cheesy Ham Loaf, Mini Turkey Meatloaves or Italian Spiced Meatloaf.
