You want easy, fast and good? We’ve got it with this month’s winners. Bliss Helpert’s Pizza Meatloaf will please kids and adults alike. It’s got the down-home goodness of meatloaf with that pizza-parlor taste.

1 package (8 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese (divided)
1 jar (14 ounces) pizza sauce (divided)
2 pounds hamburger meat
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs (or seasoned croutons, crushed)
2 large eggs

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Reserve 1/2 cup shredded cheese and 1/2 cup pizza sauce for topping later. In large bowl, mix remaining cheese and pizza sauce with ground beef and bread crumbs (or croutons) and eggs. In a 9×13-inch baking pan, shape meat mixture into loaf. Bake meatloaf 30 minutes.

Pour reserved pizza sauce over top of loaf. Bake 30 minutes longer, sprinkling with shredded cheese during last 10 minutes of baking time. Serves 6–8.
