This is quick, simple, & tasty. Perfect for a work night when time & energy are in short supply. The cottage cheese makes the meatloaf moist & adds nutrition. (BTW... adding a cup of cottage cheese to a lb of hamburg makes for yummy hamburgers!)

This was sooo good. It might be my favorite meatloaf I've ever had. Cooked it in a 350 degree oven for an hour. Half way through (before the outside browned up) I thought I would have to throw it away. The only thing I did different was add about a tablespoon more of dried onion and about 1/4 c. parmesan inside the meatloaf as well as on top the last 7 minutes of cooking.

I used ground turkey and I cooked at 350* in oven until juices ran clear. I also used Mrs. Dash instead of salt. This was very good, turkey is bland and the spices perked it up. Thanks for posting!.

I agree!!! I think it may be my favorite meatloaf. The cottage cheese really makes it moist! I didn't even add the parmesan and it was delicious. Will be making this one again soon!
