The meatloaf itself is moist and good. The sauce is way too sweet. At first I thought that I read the recipe wrong but no it's 1 1/2 cup of brown sugar. We just eat the meatloaf and discard the sauce.
My daughter prepared this meatloaf for supper this evening. We were hesitant about the milk as we've never seen that used in a meatloaf recipe before. But, it worked! The resulting dish was very moist and flavorful. Both kids thought it was the best meatloaf they had ever had. The only change she made was to use only ketchup on top. We didn't have liquid smoke and she wasn't sure if the sauce would work without it. She didn't use the bread in the pan since we had very lean ground sirloin. There was some juice in the pan at the end, but it wasn't overly greasy.
This is an awesome recipe. I did add a few other ingredients that I had on hand. Diced celery, some poultry seasonings, and 1/2 cup catsup. I put four slices of bacon on it while it baked. For the sauce I added a dash of mustard and used dried onion flakes. I 1/2 the recipe since I thought there would be too much of it. YUMMY!
Best meatloaf I ever made!!
really good recipe. didn't have any liquid smoke so just used bbq sauce in its place.
Very good meatloaf! I used poultry seasoning, which is a combination of some of those suggested in the recipe. I also didn't use as much sauce, maybe about half the amount. I'm sure this will make really good sandwiches tomorrow! Thanks!
