We needed a meatloaf recipe for a story in tomorrow's paper and I bought both lean ground beef and turkey sausages and went into the kitchen. I decided that you have to add vegetables to the meat mixture or you'll get something that isn't moist enough, so I added finely chopped carrot and onion, and lots of parsley. I had left some dinner rolls out for a day to get stale, which I threw in the food processor with the vegetables. Then I made a spicy tomato sauce to cover the top (good meatloaf needs to bake under a blanket). Great dish! Here's the recipe.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
