My DH loves meatloaf and I have many recipes for it. This is now his favorite - the caramelized onions really add a nice flavor. It does make a large loaf and takes some time to prepare it, but it is worth the work!

Mmmm!!! we like meatloaf too, and the thing we liked about this one is there are lot's left over for a sandwich, or toast later. I liked the caramelized onions, it gave it a nice flavour along with the oregano. I made it to the recipe, I even managed saltine crackers which you don't get here, but the other week we went to a chinese supermarket and I don't know why but I picked up a packet, must of been fate. I wouldn't change a thing. I served it with the sauted mushrooms and some roast potatoes very nice recipe and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Made for PAC Spring 2010
