Hi Nick.... Here is the recipe for my meatloaf. I love you, Mom. A request from my son in Australia Edit: If you want to make small loaves, I would suggest basting a bit less of the chili sauce and brown sugar on the top :)

A good, basic recipe, but a bit lacking in flavor, to us. I think I would add the chili sauce to the mix (cut down milk a bit) and just bake it in the pan instead of freeform, and skip the topping. But meatloaf was moist. made for Spring 2012 PAC game.
This had a good flavor, the meatloaf itself was wonderful, however I was not too keen on the topping. Also, I halved the recipe and I wouldn't do that again, it cooked much quicker and made a very thin meatloaf.
I thought this was a really good recipe. I have never used brown sugar in the topping on meatloaf before and it was a little sweet for our tastes, but flavorful. The meatloaf itself was very tender and moist and had a nice, crusty outer edge--just how we like it! Thanks for a good dinner tonight, Barbara.
