    I like to make this on a rack or a broiler pan, since the bacon creates alot of fat, and I don't like my meat loaf "swimming" in it.

    This was probably the tastiest meatloaf I ever made! I didn't have veal or turkey, so I had to use just hamburger and ground pork -- but it still came out wonderful! It wasn't dry, every bite had wonderful flavor, and it looked so good when it came out of the oven. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, it's a new family favorite!

    This was very good. Makes good sandwichs. I did not have fresh parsley on hand so I used dried parsley and it came out just fine.

    I cooked this exactly as written. It Came out tasting like a hot dog. I have to admit that it tasted better the next day, but still had a hot dog after flavor. I'll continue to look for a new recipe


I like to cook - mostly because I like to eat. <br> <br>Yes, I really AM a Witch, although I usually use the term Pagan when asked my religion. Paganism is an Earth-based spirituality that moves in harmony to the seasons, and recognizes both the Male and Female Divine. And no, I can't fly on a broom (darn it!)
