      Would try it again with a few adaptions. It needs a little more binding with either egg or bread crumbs, and more flavor with beef seasoning would do the trick. With the changes, it would be a keeper for a lentil loaf. Ginger

      Great recipe! I made it as directed, but took Ginger1's advice and added more egg and used some seasoned dry bread crumbs, and added some Lipton Onion Soup Mix, for flavor.
