"This is a great meatloaf. I'm surprised it hasn't already been posted yet. The only thing I like better than meat loaf is meatloaf sandwiches, and this meatloaf is even better the next day; sliced between whole wheat bread, topped with a slice of cheese, and lots of mayo. Note: I omitted the veal and adjusted the amount of beef and pork to compensate--it was still great."

"I have been making this meatloaf for years, from Martha Stewart's "Comfort Food" cook book. There is one item you didn't list in ingredients, 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley. It does add more to this meatloaf. I always make extra of the glaze and onions to go on top too. This meatloaf makes other meatloaf recipes so boring. Always a crowd pleaser!"
"I have made this recipe a few times....but I cut out the red onion garnish, and cut back the carrots to a half cup. I have made it with pork, beef and ground moose.....so delicious."
"At my vacation home w/o my favorite meatloaf recipe. Found this one and loved it! Bringing it into line with my fav, and using what I had on hand, substituted pork flavored stuffing for the bread, added 1/2 minced fresh pear (no carrots), my own bbq sauce instead of ketchup and used 16 oz turkey, 16 oz pork and 8 oz beef (or so-whatever was avail pre-packaged at the store). Used 1 tablespoon Stubbs Wing Sauce for the tabasco and made into 4 small loaves. Smoked those puppies for 2 hrs, added glaze and smoked for another 30 mins. To Die For."
"The best meatloaf recipe I have found. Great as is but can easily be tweaked and experimented with."
"This has been my go-to meatloaf recipe since I read it on her website many years ago. We love it. I substitute ground white turkey for the veal, that probably helps a little with the fat per serving, which is scary, but also I think it serves 8 or more."
"I made this for my boyfriend who was married to a gourmet cook for 22 years and he raved about it. Way to go Martha!"
"My kids love this and ask for it if I don't make it for a while. I replace the veal with ground turkey and use barbecue sauce instead of the ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar just to make it easier. I also put the onion in the loaf instead of going to the extra trouble to garnish. But still very good."
"This is a great meat loaf. I had it the first time many years ago when it appeared in martha stewart living. My husband repeatedly ask for me to make it."
"This is my favorite meatloaf ever! I don't like veal tho, and I rarely have pork around so I usually just use ground beef and it's completely delicious. I also happen to agree with Peg Bracken that "rosemary is for remembrance" and not food, so I leave that out, too:-) The topping is pretty gross looking when you mix it up, but have faith-- once cooked, it tastes great!"
"This is my favorite meatloaf to make. I love the preparation and I love how it's cooked. The traditional loaf pan style just doesn't cut it compared to this!! I have been making this dish for over 6yrs now.. stole the recipe from my moms Martha cookbook (that I bought her for x-mas.. hehe)"
"Don't be daunted by the seemingly long list of ingredients: this is a wonderfully flavoursome meatloaf, made so flavoursome because of the wonderful blend of what are essentially really quick to put together ingredients. My favourite meatloaves are those made with a mixture of meats and this one was no exception. I omitted the Tabasco sauce, I used 6 cloves of minced garlic (personal taste preferences) and I used half water and half merlot when cooking the onions (next time I'll use all merlot), but otherwise I made this exactly to the recipe. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It’s one I'll certainly be making again!"
"This was the best meat loaf ever!! Thanks for sharing a Great recipe!!"
"I wish I could rate this recipe higher - it's all there in terms of ingredients but my family just didn't enjoy it. My kids kept remarking that it tasted 'strange' and I think it must have been the dry mustard - can't for the life of me think what else it could have been. Anyway, only DH and I ate our meatloaf and we have a lot of leftovers. The kids got a cheese sandwich (2 of the 3 kids are normally not picky at all). It did make a light meatloaf, texturally, which both DH and I liked."
