Confession … I am not a measuring type of girl.  I am more of eyeball and dump kind of girl.  So when I make this recipe, I have more onion and green pepper and LOTS more cheese.

I love the melty cheese that oozes out of every bite.  I also make sure that I have plenty of sauce that goes on top … LOTS OF SAUCE!!  You will find your own preferences and adjust to your likings.

So, there you have it.  Our Mimi’s famous meatloaf.  Share with your loved ones and know our Mimi is smiling!!
