    I knew I would like this meatloaf because of the ingredients used. I don't like them if they don't have vegetables in them. The vegetables in this one gave good texture. It was very tasty and everyone liked it. I will be making it again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Easy to make and flavorful. Liked the sauce, because it wasn't sweet like so many meatloaf toppings. Looking forward to a meatloaf sandwich tomorrow! Made for ZWT 9.

    This was very good and easy to make. The flavor came mostly from the seasoning, so the type of creole seasoning you use could make a big difference here. Since the veggies were all chopped and not cooked down first, the pieces were larger in the meat than I anticipated and I was afraid that it wouldn't hold together, so I made meatloaf muffins instead of a full loaf. It was very tender and had a nice spice to it.


I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
