I'd written a review a while ago, but don't see it here...I guess you have to be signed in, even though it said my review would be submitted shortly. Anyway...we thought the meatloaf itself was fantastic! The Ritz crackers gave it a delicious flavor. I used less milk, maybe 1/4 of a cup. However, the mustard in the sauce was a bit overwhelming, so I added more ketchup and brown sugar, then drizzled in a little pure maple syrup. The end result was a savory home-style meatloaf that paired wonderfully with mashed potatoes and corn. Thanks for sharing! This will be a regular at our dinner table.

Very good. The sauce makes this meatloaf. Though I did need to bake quite a bit longer then indicated. I'll make it again.

I am a big meatloaf lover and this is by far the best recipe! I think its better than Cracker Barrel's. The sauce is extremely good! Highly recommend this recipe! I made it about 2 weeks ago and it is on again this week.
