You can replace the butter with any oil type product as it is only used to make a crust. You can use margarine or olive oil. As for the seasonings, just sprinkle in a half a teaspoon of each and then taste it before pouring it into the casserole. Then you will know whether or not it needs more of anything. It is to die for. I make a double batch for my DH so he can eat on it for awhile. I made it recently for him and he is still eating it today. lol

With meatloaf do you cook it and freeze it, or just form it and freeze it, then bake?
I have read both ways and am wondering which works better?

I also plan on making Debora's chicken, barbszy's spaghetti sauce, Lizzieboos enchiladas ,a cake and some banana nut bread.

hugs, train

Train, if you freeze it already cooked, you wind up with what tastes like "leftovers." I would advise to freeze it formed but not baked. Just thaw and bake. Write the directions on the wrapper--Sharpies can write directly on tinfoil or ziplock bags.

Train, I freeze it uncooked in a freezer bagging because I don't have extra pans. Will thaw overnight and put in the pan to cook.
