This meatloaf is pretty good. I think I would have liked more garlic, more green onion, and maybe some more worcesterchire sauce. It wasnt quite the texture that Im use to seeing in a meatloaf, but it was nice, moist and tasty. I will use this recipe again, maybe altering a few of the ingredients. I like the bite that this meatloaf has :-) I bite back! ;-) hehe
