If I made this again I would cut the water in half at least, meatloaf came out watery and slightly mushy.

Meatloaf is always popular at my house, and we usually enjoy a sandwich the next day with the leftovers. This was so good the first time around, we didn't have any left! So easy and very good. Thanks for a great recipe.
