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
this was some stunning meatloaf. i omitted the cheese from this recipe, but it still came out flavorful, moist and yummy.
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!
I found this meat loaf to be quite tasty, I was a little nervous about the carrots,but it made it sweeter than I have tasted in a meat loaf. The measurements were a little over it made a rather large loaf and took a lot longer to cook. I had to raise the temp to 400 to get it to cook at a faster rate. It also gave off a lot of liquid and I used extra lean meat. It made about eight servings and all together was a good meat loaf. I would defintely make it again.
Absolutly the best meatloaf I have ever tasted and my wife will replace her old tried a true recipe with this one. GREAT!
Excellent meatloaf! To make it guten-free, I subbed 1/2 cup quinoa flakes for the bread slices (could also use quick oats). Love the addition of carrots and cheese. Hubby loves meatloaf and he gave this 2 thumbs up!
This is the meatloaf Mom used to make, so moist and delicious. thanks for posting
my family Love it and thing is my hubby really doesnt care for meatloaf until i made this recipe and now this is the only one he will eat
I made this recipe last night and we enjoyed it very much. I was leary about the carrots in this but you couldn't taste them, they blended in with the flavor. I doubled this recipe and put two loaves in my big pan....worked perfectly. I served this with mac and cheese and baked beans. Now, I can't wait for lunch today to have meatloaf sandwiches....yummy. Thank you for sharing.
