OLD SCHOOL MEATLOAF

DONNA RIVERS

By

With 4 growing daughters, their friends, and 1 hungry husband, I had to learn how to SSSTTTRETCHH hamburger, and not always be a pasta dish! Answer: MEATLOAF
This was (and still is) a family favorite.

Before I preheat the oven, I prepare potatoes to bake. Place the potatoes in the oven when I turn it on, and when the meatloaf is done, so are the potatoes. All is needed is a veggie...supper is ready!
