Salsa Meatloaf (OAMC)

"This meatloaf tastes even better reheated the next day! The measurements are approx. as I usually do not measure the amounts as I'm throwing it together.**edited on October 24 to add instructions (see step 4) for Once a Month Cooking. I usually make this during a cooking blitz and freeze until needed."

    This is a wonderful meatloaf with a different flavour. DH and I gave it 5 full stars, the kids 4. I loved the salsa flavour and the option of using oatmeal, which is what I usually use. I didn't use the onion and onion soup mix, substituting some dried onion flakes instead to reduce the salt. The meatloaf held together well and sliced well, a bonus. Thank you, Pamela!

    I made this as mini loafs for when I want a quick meal. I just followed the directions for Once a Month Cooking and cooked them in a muffin tin. They are delicious and I will definitely make these again. When I run out.

    I didn't like it at all. I guess it's because I don't like salsa and I used chunky salsa in the meatloaf and again with the sauce on top. I was certain my husband was going to love it but even he didn't like it. Sorry but Yuck!

    This was a great dish. I left out the worcestcshire sauce due to the anchovies and didn't have time to dice an onion so I used the whole package of dry onion soup mix. The sauce for the top was wonderful! I like it a bit sweeter so I added an extra tsp of brown sugar. I will be using this recipe again. Thanks for sharing!

    This was soooooooo tasty! I made up a huge batch (5 lbs beef), split into 3 loaves, and froze 2. The last loaf we decided to have for dinner, what a great change of pace from plain meatloaf. Kids loved the extra salsa sauce, we had no problem with leftovers. Thanks, Pamela!
