My Best Recipe

Meat Loaf With a Sweet Difference for Family or Company

February 11, 1988

"My family has enjoyed my Frosted Meat Loaf for many years," Rosalind Sala writes. "I have submitted the recipe in several contests, and it has been a winner four times. This recipe can be used for any occasion. It can be prepared and baked in advance. It freezes well and is a lifesaver when unexpected company arrives."
