This was great! I'm a finnicky meatloaf eater, so I'm always lookin' for different recipes...and the cloves for the topping with the apples is what did it for me. Amazing!!

Thank you for a great recipe. I wasn't sure what to make of it when I saw the applesauce but it tastes fantastic. I didn't have any apples or cloves for the topping so I just left them out. This may now be my new top meatloaf recipe. Too bad there wasn't any left for sandwiches the next day!! (because hubby ate it all!)

I don't know if I did anything wrong or what but this just did not work at all for me. I guess I really need the old time tomato sauce variety. The applesauce did not do it for me at all. Probably would be good with a tomato sauce on it.
