Pumpkin Meat Loaf




About: I am married with two children. Spring, summer, and fall are my very favorite times of the year. I enjoy working in the yard, sewing, cooking, quilting, gardening, and creating. I do this to keep my sanity.
This instructable was inspired by the instructable's  pumpkin contest. I modified our family's favorite meatloaf recipe and The Pumpkin Meat Loaf was created! Now we have two favorite meatloaf recipes. Follow through and let's make some meatloaf!

    I tried a variation of this: left the meat out, added rice, added chopped almonds, and cayenne. Thanks for sharing. I also voted for you.
