This was a very good recipe. Instead of 3 pounds of beef, I used ground pork, veal and lamb. The meatloaf part was extremely easy to prepare, and turned out great. Instead of cutting it in thin slices, I cut each loaf in three and froze those parts separately. (A few days later…) After defrosting them in the microwave for about a minute, they were very easy to cut into thin slices. I then heated those on a frying pan. This is definitely a keeper, and I'm extremely delighted to have found this recipe. I was able to make 2 decent sized sandwiches with the 1/3 of a loaf. As a student, this is perfect: great taste, a change from the ordinary, very fast and easy to have a meal ready from frozen and it gives me a lot of meals. (in my case, 6) Thanks again 1Steve!

Excellant Recipe!!! My family loves it! We altered the ingrediants a bit for our taste but it was great. Instead of kneading for 20 mins we stuck it in a food mixer on high and it made it the same texture as real Donair meat!
