    Absolutely Delicious! This is the only way I make meatloaf anymore. I have made a couple of changes though. I use low sodium cream of mushroom & mix half of it into the meat mixture. I also use instant brown rice instead of bread crumbs & leave out the water.

    I followed this recipe to the "T", crushing croutons for bread crumbs. As other people mentioned it is a bit tender. Chilling it will give it a firmer texture. After all isn't MEATLOAF for sandwiches? (it was great hot too)..<br/>This is definitely a keeper. Thanks Carrie!

    Same boat here, my son hated meat loaf until I made it this way! I prefer this recipe over my mom's ketchup based loag...... sorry Mom!

    I loved this Meatloaf. It was so tender it just fell apart. Much better than I thought. Will make again.

    A good, basic meatloaf. Moist texture, crumbled just a little when I sliced it. I usually prefer a slightly sweetened tomatoey topping, but the mushroom soup on top was quite good. Thanks for the post.


I live in Bristol, CT. I am a stay at home MOM with 4 children. Hubby works hard and the kids play hard and the best time of day for us is dinner. I love to cook so this is my chance to do something I enjoy everyday and because I am doing it for the ones I love it makes it even better. My family is very patient and will try anything...I love them for that because I love to come up with new recipe creations and as you all know they don't always come out so good...lololol!
