Vegetable Meatloaf

The great thing about meatloaf is that it can be served many different ways. Hot right from the oven for dinner or served cold for a buffet lunch or dinner. The recipe called for 40 minutes baking time but, it might depend on the oven. I had to cook it it a little longer, so I added an extra 10 minutes.   Adapted from The American Home circa 1950’s.
