      We are giving this a 4 star rating based on taste alone. However we had some issues with this. It didn't seem to want to cook through. After the hour I took it out and checked it and it was practically raw except on top, so I put it back in and kept checking it after about 15 minutes. It ended up taking an additional 45 minutes or so and really could have gone longer but we were tired of waiting. There were still undercooked (pink) sections in the center. It also produced a LOT of liquid. Partway through the first hour is when I noticed it and not having made too many meatloaves I wasn't sure it if was normal or not so I started suctioning some out. By the time we took it out after the extended time I must have suctioned out 4-5 cups of liquid if not more and the meatloaf itself was still nice and moist so it was definately not needed lol. I am not sure if it was because our meat was semi frozen in spots still or what, so I won't fault the recipe for that. I really am not sure why we had so many cooking issues, but in the end we were able to mostly salvage it and as I said before the taste was worth the effort. We did find it somewhat bland alone, and maybe it needs more seasonings, but with ketchup (our topping of choice) we felt it was much better.
