The Meatloaf With the Sauce!

Hubby and I have an ongoing feud over meatloaf - my saucy version vs. his Italian version. Since meatloaf is one of the few entrees he knows how to make, I don't complain when he makes his...but I definitely prefer this one!

First, let me say that the smell coming out of the oven was absolutely irresistable! I was literally drooling while waiting for this to come out of the oven. DS is not an onion fan, so I reduced the onions a bit. However, the meatloaf still tasted quite "oniony". My sauce turned out very thin, so I'd eliminate the water next time. The smell deserves 5 stars, but the poll around the table was 3 & 4 stars for the meatloaf and sauce.

My husband and I would give this 5 stars, but since the kids wouldn't eat it, I'm giving it 4 stars. I thought the flavor was very nice, and subtle, but the kiddos declared it was too oniony. I think most kids would be fine with this recipe - mine were probably just in a mood tonight. Thanks for an easy to make recipe!

This was a very nice meatloaf and the sauce went so well with it. The seasoning was just right for us. I did have to use more breadcrumbs than stated to get a good consistency. We really enjoyed this and look forward to sandwiches using the leftovers. Thanks
