Well I must admit I was pretty skeptical, even more so when I saw the big mess of stuff in the bowl. But I had come this far so I decided to cook it up. Well...I am currently eating this and I must say I like it! It has a nice texture and pleasing taste. I added a couple of finely chopped sauted mushrooms to mine....<br/>Smelled really good while cooking and looks just like regular meatloaf other than the curds of cottage cheese which somehow maintained their shape. (I think I used large curd). Regardless, tastes good and I give it 5 stars.
Wow I really loved this "meatloaf." It only has a vague meaty flavor, but I don't really like vegetarian food that tastes like meat anyway I ended up using bran flakes instead of corn flakes, and left out the onion, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Very tasty- I will be making this often :)
Loved, loved, loved it! Followed recipe exactly. We served it with mashed potatoes, corn and barbecue sauce. My young kids only ate a few bites but my husband had three servings. This is a keeper for me.
I just couldn't believe how these simple ingredients make such a great meal! My husband's a vego but I'm not so we're always trying to make dinners to satisfy both our palettes and this did! Delicious and filling :)
I have to admit, no one was very excited when they saw what was for dinner. We were all pleasantly surprised. DH is a meat and potatoes guy and he had seconds! I used low fat cottage cheese, corn flakes, and egg beaters. I baked it for 60 minutes. Next time I might leave it in an extra 5 minutes, but wouldn't make any other changes. Thanks for a great meal.
This recipe is great! I didn't use the corn flakes because I wanted it to be really low carb. To add flavor, I mixed in about a 1/2 cup of meat substitute and instead of onion powder, I used a vegetarian meat loaf seasoning packet that I found at the store. This was so yummy with a mushroom gravy that I made and a side of vegetables.
Just amazing! I've been searching for a meatless recipe that tastes like actual meatloaf and this definetly fits the bill. I only made a few very small modifications- instead of walnuts I used almonds and I didn't use any chopped onions. This will be made again. I can't to use the leftovers on sandwiches tomorrow. Update: I made this 2x in one week- that's how great it it... Leftovers are excellent, and I love using the leftovers on hamburger buns with pickle and mustard- it kind of reminds me of "sliders". I have made this with and without nuts, and both are great!
Unbelievable! I've been looking a long time for a vegetarian meatloaf and gave up. When I found this, I decided to give it one more try and boy am I glad I did. Took the advice of grinding the walnuts very fine and that worked great. Also used 1 cup of bread crumbs and 1 cup of oatmeal instead of cereal. Thanks so much for sharing this little gem.
My husband and I did not care for this meatloaf. It seem to lack flavor, and it didn't even come close to tasting like a meatloaf.! We ended up topping our slices with Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet 'n Spicy Barbecue Sauce, which was the only thing that gave this meatloaf flavor. We did eat 2 slices, but ended up throwing out the rest. Guess we much prefer our meatloaf made with real beef.
We've made this for years from a recipe from my SDA friend. We prefer Special K (in fact it's called Special K loaf). For the last half hour, cover with ketchup, a delicate sprinkle of brown sugar and vegetarian bacon strips. It's simply fantastic. We serve it with cauliflower "mashed potatoes" and peas and it's a family favorite. Do try - you won't be sorry!
