      My Wife and helper, with 60 years cooking experiance, added a glove of crushed garlic, used a teaspoon of both thyme and basil, changed the topping to 1/4 cup brown sugar and (1) cup of tomato sauce. Absolutly the best meatloaf I have ever tasted and my wife will replace her old tried a true recipe with this one. GREAT! ..Jim

      Add me to the list of reviewers who loved this recipe. Flavorful and moist - fantastic! The sauce was a bit sweet for our taste, and I will cut the brown sugar in half the next time. I made this meatloaf as a Halloween dinner. I used a hand-shaped mold then inverted the meatloaf onto a baking sheet. The fingernails were slices of onion. The wrist bone was a peeled onion, with enough layers removed so the "bone" was proportional to the hand. I topped the meatloaf with sauce, then added sliced provolone cheese to create a burned skin effect. To serve, I piped mashed cauliflower between the fingers and surrounding the hand. Totally gross, and so cool!
