Mikekey this is a really great recipe. I never have used a red sauce over meatloaf and I really liked this so did DH. He had 3 slices!!! He also kept saying this is really good like this! Thank goodness I doubled the amount, now we have some for another dinner. This is a definite repeat performance! Made for MAKE MY RECIPE TAG ~ Ed'tn 14
We eat quite a lot of meatloaf and this one was pretty good thank you. I doubled the mix and used half ground turkey. I loved the flavour from the fennel seeds (may have used slightly more than you asked for) and found the meatloaf to be very moist.
A very flavoursime herby meatloaf, I only served 3 (with left overs for the DS's lunches for 2 days). For the marinara sauce I used Jensen's Organic Mushroom Pasta Sauce (2 cups [500grams] to a jar but only used 1 cup for 3 of us). With the DH not here I took the opportunity to used the onion in the mix and enjoyed (would normally sub spring onion/scallion). The only thing I would do different thought is in the last 5 minutes of cooking, drain off the fat and invert onto the tray to brown the outside. Thank you mikekey, made for Edition 8 - Make My Recipe.
TY for a great meatloaf recipe mike. I used a home-made marinara sauce (didn't plan to, but forgot to buy at the store) that I found here on Zaar. Shocking I know. Marinara Sauce. I spread it on top the last 1/2 hour of baking. Wonderful smell thru-out the house as this was all cooking together. Glad I tagged for MarketTag~
Plain old hamburger transformed into a wonderful weekday main dish.
This meatloaf is wonderful~even with my mistakes. :-) I forgot to add the 1/2 cup of milk to the recipe and it still turned out fabulous! The best way to describe this dish is that it tastes like a big meatball without all the work of making them. My oldest son (the picky eater) loved this and cleaned his plate--that says a lot. I am tickled pink with this recipe and will FOR SURE be making it again, as it was so easy to put together. I did not use the fennel seeds (didn't have any on-hand) and for the basil and oregano, I used 1 teaspoon of McCormick Italian Seasoning Blend, which has oregano and basil in it. The only problem I had, was I wish I had made more, because it is all gone! Thanks so much for a wonderful dinner tonight, mikekey!
