This is my favorite meatloaf recipe. I like using V-8 rather than tomato juice.

I've been making this meatloaf for 36 yrs!! It's that good, the tomato juice is what I call my secret recipe!! Freeze tomato juice in ice cube trays and then freeze to not waste tomato juice. I used to use one can from a 6 pack of tomato juice cans. I can't find the 6 pack anymore. Don't know how many cube it takes to make a cup. Ice cube trays come in different sizes. Write 1 cube = ?? on freezer bag when you measure out when filling trays. Yummy!! I only put 1/2 cup ketchup on top. 1/4 cup Heinz and 1/4 cup because I was going to use mayo on a YUMMY meatloaf sandwich!!!

TRAIN WRECK - Twice.
First time I did this I got meatloaf soup, even after an hour and a half of baking. Second time, I modified it and used just a single 6 oz can of tomato paste and no other liquid. No soup this time, but the egg doesn't cause it to set and you just get crumbled ground beef. No idea what the malfunction is, as I've certainly made other meatloafs before. Guess I'll go back to what works.

I made this tonight and remembered that I had made it many years ago. At that time I added a packet of meatloaf seasoning to the mix, but since I don't use those anymore, it does need something. I had also at one time, added an onion soup packet, but now I use my copycat mix instead.
This is a very good meatloaf.....very moist and it holds together very well when slicing. I will make it again, but will add more seasoning.

This is an old favorite when I was growing up...so it's been around a while..my mother always added the chili sauce to the drippings...with a little brown sugar; then poured it over the meatloaf and ran it under the broiler for a bit. Oh yes...she would put a little strip of bacon on top when cooking.

This is the only meatloaf I've made for 20 years until I discovered Zaar recipes!!!! Seriously, this is a good basic meatloaf. We still enjoy it now and then. I do leave off the chili sauce on top.

This is good meatloaf. But it lacked pizzaz! Will probably use again, but I will definitely add some diced peppers and more seasoning for sure.

Absolutely "kiddie-style" meatloaf. Bland flavor, definitely not for the adult palate.
