Single Serve Meat Loaves seem like a meal from the 70’s but it is delicious and I serve it to guests with great reviews. I love the texture that the quick oats add to this recipe. I think it is much better than bread crumbs.
This recipe is great with roasted vegetables and mashed potatoes for the ultimate comfort dinner. I first found this recipe in my Taste of Home Healthy Cooking 2012 Annual Recipes Cookbook.
