The taste was awesome, everyone loved it but next time I think I will try 2 lbs of ground beef and more bread crumbs. Thanks for a great tasting meatloaf!

Sorry but we did not like this meat loaf at all, the flavor was odd, not to our liking. I followed the recipe to the letter, each ingredient as listed. Will not be making this again.
