This recipe is a welcome break from the same old Meatloaf recipe. My mother made a recipe book of her favorite recipes, and this was one of them. Very good and economical.

I thought this was a darn good meatloaf! We paired it with a side of spaghetti and it was the perfect size meal. Next time I will try to add some Italian seasonings to the meat mixture itself. Another idea was to add a layer of sauce and cheese between two layers of meat, and still have the cheese layer on the top. Of course, it was delicious just as is, too. A great meatloaf recipe - thanks!

I personally just don't have any luck with meatloaf. It had all the ingredients my family likes but I did have to add some of the tomato sauce into the meatloaf as it was a little too dry to hold together. Followed the cooking instructions but for some reason mine stuck to the bottom of the pan. Family said it was good but was a little too dry, needed more flavor and they didn't care for the parmesan cheese in it although parmesan is a favorite in this house. I'm just not good with meatloaf no matter what I do or what recipe I use. I must have a meatloaf phobia.
