Really good! The whole family enjoyed this. I used regular tomato juice and Vogue Cuisine powdered beef base, reduced sodium. My meatloaf needed salt (and I never use the salt shaker), but I suspect that had to do with my beef base. Easy enough to fix at serving or next time I make it I'll add 1/2 t. salt or use a different product. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!

Yummy! I love meatloaf, and this tastes like a cheeseburger. Looking forward to the sandwiches that will be made! The basic recipe is very similar to the one I make, but I have never added cheese. I will from now on! I also used half ground beef and half ground turkey. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
