LOVED this recipe! I doubled the recipe and made 7 loaves which was perfect. Used half beef half turkey to make it even healthier. I also sweated the zucchini as others suggested and the meatloaf was perfectly moist, not too soupy at all. I added 1 tsp worcestershire sauce to add a bit of zing (my mom always used it, so I figured why not). After making it twice I found that the best way to get a nice crust was to bake it for 30 min, then broil for 5 min, then put the sauce on and broil for another couple min. So good!

This was a great, no bread, meatloaf. Mine was not to soupy as others stated and the flavor and texture were great. One thing I did differently was in regard to forming the loaf. The recipe said to make this into 7 small loaves. I think each would have been very tiny loaves. I divided this in half and made two loaves, and baked at 350 for about 40 minutes.

Great Recipe. Suggestion for people who say that this meatloaf is to moist is becasue zucchini containts alot of water. You should shread the zucchini with a cheese grater into a bowl and salt alittle to release the liquid (just like you do with eggplant), and then take and squeeze the shreeded zucchini into the sink and then start your Awesome and Healthy Meatloaf! Enjoy!

This was so delicious! Embarrassingly, it's the first meatloaf I've ever made, but I'll definitely be making it again. It's filling, well seasoned and full of good things. It's also very easy to put together, a new favourite here!

My 5 year old loved this as well as my husband. I used ground turkey and a whole onion instead of half puréed everything to hide :) was a bit watery like but after sat water went away didn't do the zucchini de watering like ore should have though. Loved how healthy this meatloaf is no bread is great to me.

This was absolutely the best meatloaf I have EVER had! I'm patting myself on the back for making a double batch and freezing half of it! I made it into 8 - 1/4 lb. loaves and put four of them in the freezer uncooked. I did shred the zucchini and squeeze out the moisture before I sauteed my veggies. It was perfect. ALL of my kids ate it. And they don't. eat. real. food. I can't wait to have this again!

Delicious and amazing! I added a little baking time because I like to make sure my meat is done. I don't know if that's why I didn't have any issues with the moisture or anything else. If you follow the directions, the liquid won't drip into your oven. This was the best meatloaf recipe I've ever tasted!

It tastes good but it is real watery. Don't use a baking sheet like the recipe suggests, it will leak over in your oven. Maybe put less zucchini and it won't be as wet.

This was yummy - but a little too moist (soupy my daughter said). but I took some shortcuts - didn't saute the ingredients first - just put them all in food processor and chopped them up fine, also used fresh herbs from my garden. And used ground turkey. The taste was wonderful! I may add a starch next time - 1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal will possibly work! Thanks for the post!
