YUCK, I did not enjoy the flavor of this one bit. Mine did not even slice into meatloaf but came out of the pan in a mushy mess. I followed the recipe to a tee so not sure what went wrong. Hubby ate it so I gave it 2 stars but he asked me to not make it again. This is not uncommon for a Paula Deen recipe to totally flop. I do think I am done trying her recipes for awhile (nothing against the original poster here)
This sounded so delicious but it just wasn't. It was not comfort food as it didn't stick to the stomach well. I'd recommend using turkey bacon and also browning the ground and draining to reduce the grease. It also needed a kick. I don't think I'd make this again but if anyone wants to try it, add some garlic or onions directly to the ground beef.
