I used BBQ sauce instead of the tomato sauce and also added a small can of corn. This recipe was great. My family loved it, even my thirteen month old boy! This was good. I served it with roasted red potatoes.

My family all agreed that this was their all-time favorite meatloaf. It reminds me very much of my grandmother's meatloaf--and that's a very good thing! I used 2 lbs of ground beef, 3/4 sleeve of saltines, 1 medium onion, 1/2 a bell pepper, and 2 eggs. I kept the tomato sauce and worcestershire sauce in the original amounts. It sliced very well without falling apart, and it had a great texture and flavor. I can't wait to have the leftovers in a sandwich today!

i was so glad to find this recipe, because it is similar to my mother's which i did not have. i did, however, use ketchup instead of tomato sauce. how much you say? well, my mom always mixes all of the ingredients together, then slowly adds the ketchup until all of the ingredients stick together and can be formed into a loaf. so that's what i did. why folks choose breadcrumbs over saltines for meatloaf - i'll never understand!! this recipe is simple and tastes great (don't underestimate the power of worcestershire sauce)!

This is now my go-to meatloaf recipe. The only change I make is leaving out the green peppers.

This is pretty good! I saut?ed my green pepper and onion. Knew my husband was not gonna do raw onion. I only used 4 oz in the mixture then added the rest to the top the last 13 minutes. Next time, I will add earlier. Added ketchup after slicing. Very moist meatloaf!

I made this for the family last week, and they loved it! My father-in-law requested I make this meatloaf again and soon!
