Sicilian Meatloaf

This is a great tasting meatloaf. It isn't your standard meatloaf which is what appealed to me. I like trying new things, or old treats in new ways. It is easy to make and easy to freeze.

  1. For the serving day is it implied that you thaw this first, then bake? Was wondering the same for other recipes as well. Or are they designed to go from freezer to oven? Thanks!

    1. Kathleen, looks like you should thaw this first and then bake as directed. For other recipes, they will clearly indicate if they should be baked or cooked from frozen.
