“Do you really need another meatloaf recipe? Better make room for this one because you won't want to miss out on this vegetable-studded gem. From "Mrs. Rowe's Restaurant Cookbook: A Lifetime of Recipes from the Shenandoah Valley". I diced a whole small onion, omitted the green pepper, and baked in a 9" x 13" pan for 45 minutes. Makes a great cold meatloaf sandwich. Add 1/2 cup diced cooked carrots for color if you like. TIP: Try placing slices of stale bread in the bottom of the pan, under the meat mixture, to absorb grease. Discard bread after baking.”
