This was very good. I am not much of a meatloaf person, but I wouldn't have turned away seconds of this one. :) DH liked it too. I served it with baked potatoes and cantaloupe. I took Lisa Gardner's idea and substituted tomato paste and water for the tomato soup. I skipped the Worcestershire sauce altogether as we never have any. Thanks for posting, and I love it's name!
I made this recipe on 8/30/2011 for the " Kitchen Cupboard Event " in the Food Photo Forum,and most importantly for mine and my SO's Dinner.Due to what was on hand a couple of changes were made to the recipe, instead of using celery seed I used the same amount of celery powder.For the smoky BBQ sauce, a Chipotle/Lime BBQ sauce was used.Other than those changes, the recipe was made as it written.Instead of using a loaf pan,the meatloaf was just free-formed into a loaf.I'm not sure if it was the changes that I had made,but the taste wasn't what we thought it should be.Maybe when I have the correct ingredients, I'll try this again and re-review it.But thanks for taking the time to post this recipe and, " Keep Smiling :) "
My husband said this meatloaf was "the best he ever had". I was out of tomato soup, so I substituted a 6 oz can of tomato paste + 2/3 can of water for it, it worked out wonderfully. The meatloaf sandwiches from this are so good, too! Thank you.
This is a great meatloaf recipe. Since it is just my husband and myself, I modified the recipe just a bit. Instead of cooking this like a whole "loaf", I made the meat into 8 individual "patties". I cooked up a couple for dinner, then froze the rest for a later meal (I portioned the sauce and froze some of that in a small container as well). Thanks!
Now THIS is how meat loaf should taste. Good old fashioned meatloaf. Of course served with gravy, mashed potatoes and little green peas. Nostalgic!
