How can you get your family to eat their vegetables? Hide them inside this roll-in-one meatloaf! This mid-sixties recipe for a rolled, stuffed meatloaf was created by the Campbell’s soup company to promote their tomato soup (in place of a traditional tomato sauce.) The idea was that by filling the traditional, family-favorite dinner with green beans, you could save the work of creating a separate side dish.
