  • Reviews

  • “I can’t believe this recipe has been here this long and never reviewed. I would give 5 stars but I did a bit of switching up. I only used 1 pound of ground beef ( two pounds of meat is to much for just two of us LOL) So I cut back on most of the other ingredients ( I did add most of the onion,pepper and garlic but they were smaller) I used a Jack Daniels barbeque sauce instead of chili sauce. We wanted a nice thick layer of potatoes so I probably added more. I did add some butter on top of the potatoes to keep them from drying out. All is all a lovely meatloaf. I did not use fat free cheese. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag as a Host Andi special Definite keeper.Forgot to add I did not broil the veggies I just roasted them in the oven”
