These were soo good. I read the ingredients, had some ground beef that had to be used, and curiosity pulled me in. Cooking them in butter was perfect. The tastes of the mixture all blend together really well, with nothing standing out and overtaking the others. My DH says they are a definite do-again, a good substitute for meatloaf. Very good, TY
