Want to serve something that everyone likes, is easy to fix, and makes you look like a kitchen pro? Garden meat loaf is it! This one tastes great the first time around, as well as making great leftover cold meat loaf sandwiches...promise!

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 medium eggplant, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
