Wow !!!! Are these ever good. A couple of MINOR adjustments. Used ground sirloin only, and left out the lamb. Omitted the salt, and used minced white onion in place of the red onion. The mint/thyme combination was fantastic, and the mint was very noticable. Made the argula-cucumber salad with this too, with the yogurt/feta, a very nice quick very tast dinner that was also served with Barbecued, Spiced Lime Corn on the Cob#438317. Definately recommended to anyone that would like a nice twist to meatloaf, and a complete dinner. Made for PRMR Tag.
