  1. The ingredients are very similar to my stuffed meatloaf recipe. I also add chopped mushrooms to the mix. Made it last week. Great leftovers, too.

  2. This is a fascinating recipe, but I don’t think it’s something I would like. (Does that mean you can eat more share? Nope, I guess it doesn’t make a difference.)
