Great meatloaf...just like my mom used to make without the brown sugar topping. Thanks for posting a great meatloaf recipe!!
I have made this meatloaf several times now and it's a hit every single time. Hands down the best meatloaf I have ever ate. I don't add water to the sauce mixture and a little more brown sugar than the recipe calls for because we like that sweet flavor it gives. I also saute up some green peppers and throw them into the meat mixture. We love this recipe!
this is the best meatloaf recipe I have found! It had the slightly firmer texture that we like. I too used panko instead of cracker crumbs. Next time I will make half the sauce.
This is really good and makes a large amount. We ate this and ate this for several days (2 adults and 2 very small children.) We had it w/ mashed potatoes and we had it on toasted kaisers. I'll make it again, but w/ the following changes: saute the onions a bit b/f adding to the mix (a bit *crunchy* for me), halving the water in the sauce mix (great flavor, very thin, agree that the caramelized/burnt sauce bits were delicious!!) and I'd like to intensify that!
This was an excellent meatloaf!! The only criticism I have of it is that the onions either need to be finely chopped or saute'd first because they were a bit uncooked ( chopped them into 1/4 to 1/3 inch pieces. My family all raved over the flavor though
I adjusted this recipe to use 2 lbs of meat. I cooked this in the crockpot and it turned out great. All the sauce in this recipe made it perfect for the crockpot. I used half whole wheat breadcrumbs half whole wheat saltine crackers. I think using partial saltines or other crackers are a must for the most flavor because of the added salt. Mine sliced nicely as leftovers for meatloaf sandwiches.
Just made this meatloaf day before yesterday,it was so yummy!!!I loved the glaze on the outside it was so good.Actually the glaze was the reason I tried this recipe,and it was exactly as good as it sounded. Thanks,Darlene
Very, very good. I, too, had too much sauce and will cut it in half next time.
This tastes exactly like the meatloaf I had when I was growing up and is the best meatloaf I've ever had. My children will even eat this and my husband has requested about once a week since I first made it. Absolutely fantastic!
I had to come back here and change my rating of this recipe from 4 stars to 5. I have not found a recipe for meatloaf that I like any better. It does make a lot of sauce, but most everyone was putting on top of their mashed potatoes and loved it. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I plan to make this our regular meatloaf.
