I had a hard time deciding how to rate this. My husband didn't like it much at first because he complained it didn't have enough ketchup. I suggested he add ketchup to his piece and then tell me what he thought. He said that made the difference and would make it about 4 1/2 stars now. Then I ate it. This is the first meatloaf I've tasted in years that I actually really liked AFTER I added more salt and pepper. I'm not blaming the fact that I didn't put enough in...because I didn't know how much to add with the other seasonings...that's my fault. Anyway since I actually am going to go back for a second piece instead of throwing away half of my original serving(which is what I usually do)...rates big time in my book. When I make it again I will hand DH the ketchup bottle...I will not add it to the loaf since a lot of ketchup is one of the things I don't like in most meatloafs.

Best meatloaf recipe ever!!
Made and reviewed for PAC Fall 2008. I would have to say that this meatloaf recipe is not the best I have ever tasted, but certainly not the worst. It just seemed a little bland to my taste; even with the seasoned bread crumbs. Giving an actual measurement for the salt and pepper would be helpful, as I think I may not have added enough. The amounts of hot sauce and worcestershire sauce can definitely be increased because a "dash" of these two sauces will not do anything to season 2 lbs of meat. Thank you for submitting this recipe, nursecindy.
