I went searching for a meatloaf recipe using ingredients I had on hand at the moment and this was the winner. WOW!! Delicious! All 4 boys came back for seconds. I'll double the recipe next time so there will be leftovers. Followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for posting, Herndons.

Wow this was really good and full of flavor! I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't make the sauce. I just used ketchup. I also cooked mine for two hours. We all enjoyed this and there was not a piece left. I have a bunch of freshtakes that I got for free with coupons and I put them in the freezer as we didn't like it on chicken. I will be making this again!
