      I made these for Pick a Chef. September 2007. We loved this.I was a bit hesitant about sitting my meatloaf into the oven dish unsupported, but it went fine, I did have to drain off some excess fat that came out of the meat near the end of the cooking time, but the end result was still a soft and moist meatloaf. It was very easy to put together. We don't have instant minced onion here in the Netherlands and I had run out of dried onion flakes, so I just used my stick blender on a large yellow onion and threw in the pureed result. DH did comment that we would have liked to have seen some herbs in this, but also liked it well enough as it was. Please see my rating system: a lovely 4 stars for an easy and tasty meatloaf recipe. Thanks !
