Zesty Meatloaf

Recipe: Zesty Meatloaf

Summary: No one likes to admit they like meatloaf. Maybe, it's the name. Someone should come up with a better one. I think it was my son, Ben, that came up with "Meat Salad Pie Cake". So, here it is folks... a pretty stinkin' good Meat Salad Pie Cake recipe. You'll love it with garlic mashed potatoes. It's a Marilyn Harris recipe.
