    Derf's Note:

    Easy and tasty served either hot or cold, wonderful sliced cold for a picnic or sandwiches. We have enjoyed this basic meatloaf for many years.Try a change, instead of the usual topping, try your favourite salsa brushed on top, a nice Chipotle medium or hot salsa is wonderful on it.

      Dorothy, my husband loved this meatloaf, he said it kind of tasted like pork. I think it was the thyme and the beef broth. He wasn't crazy about the topping, so he just scraped it off. Thanks for a good meatloaf recipe!

      UPDATE: I just made this again and I am still amazed at how firm and moist this meatloaf is at the same time.

      I made this for a company who I cater for. To make it for fifty people I wanted to keep it basic so I didn't use the thyme or sage. I didn't use the glaze because I served it with gravy and it was the most delicious meatloaf ever. Thanks again, Derf. It is the only meatloaf recipe I will ever use.

      I made this recipe on 7/13/12 for mine and my SO's dinner. Except for free- forming the loaf and placing it in a 9x13 in.baking dish,the recipe was made as it was written.After baking, I let it " rest "for about 10 minutes and it sliced perfectly without any crumbling at all.!! Very enjoyable taste. Thank you so much for posting, and " Keep Smiling :) "
