“This is comfort food that my Gram always made growing up. It's easy and very kid-friendly. I usually cut the recipe in half and use a mini loaf. It's best when the layer of meat is no more than 1/2 inch thick. My Gram used Accent seasoning. I like a dash of garlic powder & italian seasoning. I criss-cross 2 inch sliced strips of American Cheese singels across the top of the meat the last 5 minutes of baking. I serve it with a salad and it's the perfect dinner on a cold night.”
