I can't talk for any Canadian firefighters, but we thought that this meatloaf was awesome!
Like Teresa, mine didn't hold together too well, but who cares, it tasted wonderful, and the entire family ( especially the 6 and 4 year olds) virtually inhaled it, and told me that I could make it again!!
Easy to prepare with wonderful flavours..we loved it!
A definite keeper for me.
Made as a big THANK YOU for Syd for being the HOST WITH THE MOST in PRMR..x

Great meatloaf, Syd! We enjoyed this a lot...I reduced the salsa to 1/2 cup because the mixture was quite wet, but the taste was fabulous! I followed this exactly except for the reduction of salsa. I always put an extra piece of bread under the meatloaf (on the bottom of the baking dish) to catch the extra fat. Thanks Syd for making our Saturday lunch spectacular!

This was just great! I am low carbing so I cut back to 1 slice of bread and added an extra egg. I also used dehydrated onions because I was in a hurry. After letting it stand for 20 minutes it sliced very nicely and held together just fine! Thanks Sydney Mike...from Toronto Vi!
