As with most recipes, you try it once then find out what you could do differently, if anything. I found that there was enough salt, but I didn't have dried thyme, so I used ground thyme and cut the amount in half. If you don't do this it is way over powering. Also I used dried basil but only used 1tsp. I also added 1 tsp of all spice. It gives it a really nice flavour. I also substituted the ketchup for bbq sauce on top. Fantastic! My family loves this recipe. If you like spicy....add 1/2tsp of cayenne pepper. Still lots of flavour and some bite!

Stop! Do not make this recipe ! I was in a jam at the last minute, and was out of my usual meatloaf seasoning mix(Mccormick)., so I threw this together ,against my better judgement . I was right the thyme and basil are way overpowering , my husband spit it out and had awful on his face , I never written a review before but I cannot see how someone would post such a terrible recipe.:(, I threw it in the garbage , not suitable for human consumption

WAY too much salt! Trust me, cut it down to 1/2 to 1 tsp. depending on preference. That being said, this mix has pretty good flavoring (minus the saltiness). I've never tasted the meatloaf "packets" like the one this was made to replace, but this seasoning mix definitely turned a rather bland meal into a flavorful one! Side note: those seasoning packets are FILLED with harmful stuff so of course this mix isn't going to taste like the packet! Use your head... What your tasting is pure goodness not processed chemicals :) I would've given it a higher rating if it hadn't been for the amount of salt. <br/>Another change I made is placing slices of bread on the bottom of the loaf pan (omitting it from the meat mixture) so that it soaks up the grease of the meat. Just remove the bread from the bottom before serving (saves you the extra, unnecessary carbs and it makes it a paleo dish!).

I really feel like this seasoning has gotten a bum rap... I didn't have time to go to the store so I found this online. While I was skeptical given the bad reviews, I figured it was better than nothing. And, I guess since I was expecting some horrible results, I was pleasantly surprised! The only thing I did differently was reduce the regular salt to 1/2 tsp. and added 1 tsp. of celery salt and some dried, minced onion. I thought it was good. Not quite like McCormick but no one in my house could tell a difference! I will likely use this from now on instead of paying for a package since I already have all the spices in my cupboard!

Nope! McCormick's has some celery, onion and garlic! Keep trying.

It was NOTHING like McCormick's Meatloaf Seasoning Mix. This was OK tasting but I probably wouldn't fix it again.

I really wanted this to work, but it is nothing like the McCormick mix, and it really wasn't very good. My family usually has the McCormick version for leftovers, and they didn't touch this meatloaf. I won't try again.
