“From Gramma's recipe collection. A twist on meatloaf. You can use spicier sauce if you like a bigger kick. The recipe calls for carrots, but as a kid I never knew they were there and Gramma assures me they were, so if you want your kids to eat more veggies, I suppose this is a good way to sneak them in! When I make it, I sometimes add salsa that contains black beans and corn to the loaf ingredients.”
