Great recipe to feed a crowd! I wanted something to go along with my Schlabberkappes (Cabbage With Gravy) after our sauerkraut-making, and this was it. The crowd was happy and not one single crumb was left. Germans mostly are used to "Falscher Hase" (false hare) which is a very simple kind of meatloaf, so they all were pleased to have something different, and I had to make about ten outprints of this recipe :D Thanks for posting!
This was really tasty. It was also super moist. The flavor of the topping was my favorite part of the meatloaf. I did have to cook mine a bit longer1 1/2 hours, but that could just be the difference in ovens. I cut the recipe down and only prepared 1 loaf. I didn't think my family of four could eat 4 meatloaves, although it'd be a good idea to maybe prepare all and freeze the others. Prepared for PAC Fall/2008
