This recipe originally came from It tasted very flat, so the next few times I made it I added and subtracted and came up with this. I haven't changed too much the last few times I made it. I can't seem to make anything without adding or subbing something.

this recipe was soo easy and simple. my family and i thought it was great, and my daughter, 'the picky eater' of the family even loved it. it didn't even make it as a leftover, because there was nothing left! :) i was actually suprised at how great it tasted for being so simple. it is a lot easier and healthy than the meatloaf(beef) i make. i even thought it was juicier than some salmon fillets i have eaten. i will defenitely be making this again. thank you soo much! ----------------------------------------------- also i am updating my review from my first time making this. i have made it several times now and everytime someone new is amazed and in love with the taste of this. it's great! i think this is one of my favorite things to make. everyone loves it! thanks again!
