There was a time when I was on a relentless pursuit of a delicious meatloaf recipe. The ketchup/vinegar/Worcestershire sauce/brown sugar variations out there did not inspire me to make any recipe a keeper. Finally, I vowed I would never make another meatloaf again. Then I heard of the Florentine type of meatloaf a couple of month's ago. I found this recipe, and I have to say that it was absolutely the yummy I was looking for! Pretty much seasoned perfectly, though the cheese may have tipped it over into just slightly too salty. I cut the amount of spinach to maybe a couple of tablespoons. I am so pleased to have found this recipe! Definitely a keeper!!

Another winner from Recipezaar for us! The entire family loved this one. Even my youngest, who is kind of anti-spinach right now, adored the meatloaf part. Since the spinach wasn't mixed in completely, he was able to eat around it. Thumbs up all around!

I am not a huge meatloaf fan, but I really loved this one. I forget to put some of the sauce in the filling and it still turned out great. I can see this being very versatile! Thanks for sharing!

This was a pretty good meatloaf. I think next time I will cut the spinach in half as it can be overpowering if it is not evenly distributed throughout the loaf. Also, I might add some onions and garlic to the meat. My husband said it was OK. I served it with mash potatoes and peas. I'll make it again with a few changes!

My boyfriend loves meatloaf, but plain old meatloaf was too boring for me. This one satisfied us both! Mine turned out a little dense, but I think if I reduced the breadcrumbs slightly it would help. Thanks for the great recipe!

This was excellent. I added a teaspoon of crushed red pepper to the sauce because my husband likes spice. I followed the rest pretty closely and it was delicious. The two of us ate almost the whole thing. Thanks. I will definitely make it again.

The best meatloaf I (and my family) has ever had! My 6 year old daughter said this was her favorite dinner and asked me to make it again tomorrow! I followed your changes and it was great...Finally found something to do with the left over salad bag. Thanks...

I recently printed a bunch of meatloaf recipes to try as my family loves meatloaf. My DH had the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" attitude. I shut him up with one taste of this meatloaf. I've made it twice now, and I've found that it is a little better with fresh baby spinach. I'll keep this recipe and make it at least twice a month. Thanks for one of the best meatloaf recipes ever!

Truly, this was the best meatloaf I have ever eaten and my husband agrees. I was a little skeptical when the meat seemed very wet but in the end realized it was probably what made it so moist! This recipe is definetly going on my monthly menu rotation!!!
