I really messed this one up. I can't imagine that the original chef meant that you should use two ounces of onion soup mix,... I think that is what put it over the edge. I bought the box that had two one ounce packages in it and threw them both in. I bet it would have been much better with only one packet in it. When low carb meatloaf is on the menu again I will make that adjusted and re-review!!
