I would like a recipe for meatloaf for 2

We will definitely work on that for you. For now, we have two meat loaf recipes that may work for you in the meantime. The first one is Barbecue Turkey Loaves, == -Turkey-Loaves and the other is Muffin Tin Meatl Loaves. Each recipe makes individual portions, so you can have enough for two and freeze the rest for another meal. Thank you for your question!

The pushcart onion sauce was delicious with our grilled brats. A little sweet a little spicy, leftovers are good reheated too.

My food stamps have been cut to $104.00 I need meals for one or two that can fit with this budget please. Becky

need the hot & sour soup recipe

Please either post or send me the recipe for hot & sour soup---chinese Thanks Denny Robinson

It would be EVEN MORE HELPFUL if the Mr. Food website were to create an eBOOK with the entire 32 recipes for two. Surely would save time for me and my busy lifestyle.


That is a great idea, thank you for your suggestion! I will forward it to our editors and see what they can do. Thank you again and enjoy!

THANK YOU!!!!! I cook for one every day and this will help a lot.

Still hoping for a repeat of the Jello cookies.

I love that you have given us recipes for 2 and wish that you would continue to do this. It's hard to find recipes for 2. Thank you.
