I used to spend hours making a very involved meatloaf recipe by Paula Dean. It was also expensive because it called for things like bacon. I will never make it again! I made this recipe last night and it blew the Paula dean recipe out of the water! I got rave reviews from my son and husband and it really was simple! The only thing I did differently was to add garlic powder instead of chopping garlic and I added a bit of fresh parsley because I needed to use it up. Otherwise, I followed the directions completely. If you are looking for an awesome meatloaf then stop right now. you have found it! Thanks for such a wonderful recipe that I will definately use over and over again!
It was a tad to sweet for me, but my husband loved it. I added some zatarans spice to it and that made it perfect for me. It was a quick and easy recipe. It was easy on the wallet too since it did not have a lot of ingredients. I might try adding a little less sugar next time and that should help for me.
My husband was Wowed by this recipe. Instead of Ritz crackers I used whole wheat crackers for some fiber. It was a great tasting meatloaf! I will do this one again.
I made this for photo tag for last nights dinner. I had planned on making my meatloaf but easily switched to using your recipe. This was excellent and I liked the added tangy flavor for the topping!! The only change I made was I used 2% milk rather than evaporated milk as I didn't have it on hand. I made a mini meatloaf and froze the rest for another meal.
