    I'd written a review a while ago, but don't see it here...I guess you have to be signed in, even though it said my review would be submitted shortly. Anyway...we thought the meatloaf itself was fantastic! The Ritz crackers gave it a delicious flavor. I used less milk, maybe 1/4 of a cup. However, the mustard in the sauce was a bit overwhelming, so I added more ketchup and brown sugar, then drizzled in a little pure maple syrup. The end result was a savory home-style meatloaf that paired wonderfully with mashed potatoes and corn. Thanks for sharing! This will be a regular at our dinner table.

    Best meatloaf recipe. I follow the recipe ... No tweaking required for us ?? It is a favorite request from my 12 year old son. Made it also for our weekly Sunday dinner (average 20 people) and it was enjoyed by all. Can't go wrong!

    I am a big meatloaf lover and this is by far the best recipe! I think its better than Cracker Barrel's. The sauce is extremely good! Highly recommend this recipe! I made it about 2 weeks ago and it is on again this week.

    Very good. The sauce makes this meatloaf. Though I did need to bake quite a bit longer then indicated. I'll make it again.

    First time making meatloaf, followed the recipe but added chopped green peppers, a dash of garlic powder, salt and pepper to the meat, also added about 1/4 cup of Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce, and a dash or two of Worcestershire sauce to the topping, broiled at the end to caramelize the sauce. Very delicious and moist meatloaf recipe, served with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. Yum!

    I have made this several times and I don’t add the green pepper but I add bacon. Delicious

    Instead of ketchup, we use a 50/50 mix of ketchup and bbq sauce on top. Tastes much better!

    No green pepper

    I love this recipe! I did use 2pds of beef and increased the cooking time to 400 and I put marinara on top because my family doesn't like ketchup. But it comes out perfect. My husband's favorite!
