It was a tasty meatloaf. I thought the carrots were a nice addition. I used mild Italian sausage for the hot sausage and had to skim off the fat a few times as it cooked. The sauce was a bit too sweet for my taste. Next time I make it (and there definitely will be a next time} I think I will cut back a bit on the sugar and wait to put the sauce on the top until it is nearly cooked through and I have de-fatted the juices.
I only used 1/4 c. instead of 1/2 c. mustard in the topping. This is a delicious change for us!
Followed this to the letter--very easy & very Tasty. A pleasant change from ho-hum meatloaf. The zip from the hot sausage was a great addition & went well with the combo of flavors in the topping.
This was really good. I had some leftover sausage from spagetti lastnight so I removed the casings and added to this receipe.
Loved this recipe! I took a cue from another reviewer and used a muffin pan. We're trying to watch our calories, so I wanted to divide the servings in half. I put it in 12 muffin cups and cooked it for one hour, and it was YUMMY. We loved the sauce, but it makes a lot so next time I'll probably cut it in half to reduce the calories a little more. It was WONDERFUL, and a real keeper!
OooooKaaaay. . .First of all, you need to know that I HATE MEATLOAF. That said, this is one of the tastiest meals I've ever had. Can this really be that dreaded stuff? I followed the recipe exactly except for shorting the mustard in the sauce slightly and adding just a tad of salsa to cut the sweetness. Next time I'll just cut the brown sugar. Oh, and I used buffalo instead of beef. (I have a lot of it.) Aaaah, but this was delicious. Should I confess I had a second slice? Hope the cold meatloaf sandwich at midnight will be equally as good. Many thanks to you, DiB.
Skipped the carrots and used bread crumbs instead of the cracker crumbs. This was great stuff- made awesome sandwiches the next day.
This is really good. The sauce would be good on any meatloaf recipe. I used to make the Lipton onion soup meatloaf, but this beats the pants off it.
This was sooooooooooooooo good! I grew up on pressure cooker meatloaf w/ketchup.. then, for yrs, Frugal Gourmet sour cream meatloaf, but I really, really LOVE this one! Makes excellent next day sandwiches - mayon on one side, ketchup OR bbq sauce on the other, heat n eat!<br/><br/>ALL the yrs I grew up in So Cal, went to Dland & Knott's and never knew how good!
