This recipe was made on 10/8/09 as part of mine and my SO's dinner.Here's the way this meatloaf was made, the full amount of hamburger was used along with both eggs.For the salt and pepper, a few good shakes were used. After adding the onion, a couple of good shakes of garlic powder was also added. Then I poured in about 1 cup of tomato juice, added the breadcrumbs and mixed well. I did have to add some more breadcrumbs, so another 1/3 to 1/2 cup was added. Instead of using a loaf pan, I just free- formed it in a baking dish. To make sure I had enough glaze, the ingredients were doubled and spread all over the loaf after baking for one hour. My SO doesn't really care for meatloaf, but he gave this one a 4 star rating. I too, enjoyed this recipe very much. Thanks for posting and , " Keep Smiling :) "
Very simple yet very tasty. I didn't have the dried mustard for the sauce, so subbed some dijon. Made for PAC Spring '08. :)
I loved the soft texture of this meatloaf. I had 1 1/4 lbs of meat so it was a little wet by the time I had the tomato juice and eggs in the mixture so I added a little more crumbs. My kids don't like tomato juice so this is a good way to get some into them! My older son doesn't like glaze so I left 1/4 of the loaf plain and I think some garlic powder in the meat mix would have been nice. My picky son liked it too. He agreed with your description "awesome!" Thanks for a nice meatloaf recipe!
