One Pan MeatLoaf Dinner

Linda Griffith


I love to cook. I could stay in the kitchen all day but I must confess that I don't like the clean up part. This one pan dinner is a favorite. You simply put everyting in a 9x13 inch baking pan or a large casserole. I love the simplicity and most of the ingredients are things you have on hand....
