I have been making this meatloaf for years, from Martha Stewart's "Comfort Food" cook book. There is one item you didn't list in ingredients, 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley. It does add more to this meatloaf. I always make extra of the glaze and onions to go on top too. This meatloaf makes other meatloaf recipes so boring. Always a crowd pleaser!

I have made this recipe a few times....but I cut out the red onion garnish, and cut back the carrots to a half cup. I have made it with pork, beef and ground moose.....so delicious.

At my vacation home w/o my favorite meatloaf recipe. Found this one and loved it! Bringing it into line with my fav, and using what I had on hand, substituted pork flavored stuffing for the bread, added 1/2 minced fresh pear (no carrots), my own bbq sauce instead of ketchup and used 16 oz turkey, 16 oz pork and 8 oz beef (or so-whatever was avail pre-packaged at the store). Used 1 tablespoon Stubbs Wing Sauce for the tabasco and made into 4 small loaves. Smoked those puppies for 2 hrs, added glaze and smoked for another 30 mins. To Die For.

The best meatloaf recipe I have found. Great as is but can easily be tweaked and experimented with.

This has been my go-to meatloaf recipe since I read it on her website many years ago. We love it. I substitute ground white turkey for the veal, that probably helps a little with the fat per serving, which is scary, but also I think it serves 8 or more.

I made this for my boyfriend who was married to a gourmet cook for 22 years and he raved about it. Way to go Martha!

My kids love this and ask for it if I don't make it for a while. I replace the veal with ground turkey and use barbecue sauce instead of the ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar just to make it easier. I also put the onion in the loaf instead of going to the extra trouble to garnish. But still very good.

This is a great meat loaf. I had it the first time many years ago when it appeared in martha stewart living. My husband repeatedly ask for me to make it.

This is my favorite meatloaf ever! I don't like veal tho, and I rarely have pork around so I usually just use ground beef and it's completely delicious. I also happen to agree with Peg Bracken that "rosemary is for remembrance" and not food, so I leave that out, too:-) The topping is pretty gross looking when you mix it up, but have faith-- once cooked, it tastes great!
