“This is my recipe for meat loaf. However, I have always cooked it in a 9x11 pyrex baking dish so my husband calls it meat cake. It even has an "icing " on top. I usually make mashed potatoes and a green vegetable to go with this. I also have enough leftovers to make meat cake sandwiches later in the week. The meat cake sandwiches are delicious.”
