“Meatloaves are one of the versatile mainstays in any homemaker's recipe file. They're easily turned into an extraordinary entree, and provide for flexibility in ingredients and preparation. This recipe is just one example: Manila style, a bit unusual, and combined with the creamy goodness of shredded cheese, it's just as appetizing and juicy as any meatloaf can be. An adopted recipe.”
