This is a wonderful homemade meal on the fly. The meatloaf is fun for the kids to help make and it’s super tasty. I do not make a starch with it because there is stuffing right in the meat so you just need a side veggie and dinner is on the table!!
My kids call this veggie side “rainbow in a pan”. Super easy and pretty too!!
