I've never had a good recipe for meatloaf before. We really liked this one. And it smelled sooo good while it was cooking. Thank you, dcmac, I'll make this often.

I am not really a meatloaf person, or an onion person, and I have never seen evaporated milk in meatloaf, but this was pretty good. I didn't have crackers, so I used Panko breadcrumbs, but other than that, I followed the recipe ingredients exactly. I was making oven-baked baby potatoes at the same time, so I kind of divided my baking sheet with tin foil, and just shaped it into a loaf on a baking pan (made for easier clean-up too!). I didn't even put any ketchup on it (which is what I usually do with meatloaf). I would probably cut the salt down to 1 tsp. or maybe even less if I made it again, as a personal preference. Made for Fall PAC 2012.

LOVE THIS RECIPE! This makes great sandwiches, or can be used as a meat main dish. What I really like is the versatility! You can use the condiment(s) you like to accompany the sides you are serving, i.e, soy for Asian(or Hoisin, Chinese Mustard, etc.). If you want it American, serve with ketchup, BBQ sauce, or gravy. For Mex, top it with salsa and sour cream(cheese, jalapenos, etc.) I think there will be some sliced "some of this" in my freezer forever. Thanks for a ground beef recipe that will allow me to placate my palate daily with whatever I might be in the mood for. It is plain. It is simple. But, you can do whatever you want with it depending on your dining whim!

A reliable, traditional meatloaf. We really enjoyed it. I used Ritz cracker crumbs.

THIS WAS EXCELLENT!!!! I have tried many meatloaf recipes only to be disappointed or not fully satisfied. My family really enjoyed the flavor of this and it was so simple to make. The only change I made was to use whole wheat bread crumbs instead of cracker crumbs. Thanks for posting this. It is now my go-to recipe for meatloaf.

Great meatloaf!! I don't like meatloafs with alot of add in ingredients like worcestershire sauce or tomato sauce, so this recipe fit my family perfectly!! I made this using one pound of ground beef, so cut back some on the evaporated milk, crackers and dry mustard and just eyeballed the onion and salt. I did add some pepper to the beef mixture and add some plain ketchup on top of the loaf. I was only making this for me last night, so I baked it in a mini loaf pan and it came out perfect. I froze the rest of the mixture for a later use. Thanks for sharing your recipe Nimz!!! Made for WTTM Tag.

Once again this recipe just goes to show that basic in no way equates to dull. This meatloaf shines with flavor and has an almost creamy element to it. My DH, said that it's "even better than my mothers" *Faint*, those are words I never thought I'd ever hear from him. May there be many blessings upon your house Nimzy :D.

I've made this several times and we really like it. It's so easy to simply add in some finely chopped veggies from my mini chopper on the days we want them or leave them out. My toddler loves this meatloaf because I can slice it up and he can easily feed himself.
