Sweetloaf. I prefer the original recipe.

I have a recipe that I've used for years and we've been happy with it but the author of this recipe seemed so confident that I had to try this one. I was hesitant to use the condensed milk (sounds weird for a meatloaf) but I'm glad I did. Meat loaf is a bit on the sweet side but we liked it that way. Also loved the texture of it! Liked using the dried onions and avoiding all that chopping. On a whole, we loved the recipe and will use it again.

desert dinner, too sweet for us! My southern father in law, couldn't get enough- could be a regional thing.

This recipe convinced me that I need to start making good old fashioned comfort food more often. I thought my husband was going to cry from happiness. Not only that, this recipe is a bit healthier than your average meatloaf due to the oats. (Plus I used 2% milk, and decreased the sugar and it still turned out perfectly.) Thank you for a new staple!

This was wonderful! I used 99% lean ground turkey, so it looked a little funny (more of a tan color than the typical meatloaf-brown!), but it tasted fabulous! I loved the fact that I didn't have to eat around the onions like I normally do! I served this dish with Skinny Mashed Potatoes and green beans for a low-fat, comfort food meal! Thanks for the recipe! We will enjoy this again and again!

Oh my gosh, this has to be the best meatloaf ever! I have tried many meatloaf recipes and none even come close to yours. My house was filled with a mouthwatering aroma while baking, I could hardly wait until it was done. The flavor is out of this world - thanks for sharing.

I was a bit skeptical about the milk and all the brown sugar. I thought it would make this too sweet. Hey, Virginia! This is the BEST meat loaf. I am throwing away my family's recipe--don't tell them. This is sooooo good--you simply must try it. Thanks for the great addition to my repetroire.
