On 1/28/10 this was made as part of mine and SO's dinner. Before this recipe is reviewed, I must say I really messed up this recipe. And believe it or not, it still turned out pretty good. O.k. now on with the review, about 1/2 cup of chopped onions were added along with a bit of pepper. Now here comes the part were I messed up the recipe, while I was mixing the ingredients the half can of soup was added to the meatloaf mixture. So, I added a bit more bread crumbs to the mixture and it seemed to be o.k. Instead of baking in a loaf pan, the meatloaf was just free formed into loaf in a baking dish. At the end of the first 30 minute baking mark, I mixed the remaining soup with about 3 to 4 tablespoons of the "drippings " a bit of cornstarch and about 1/2 cup of water to make enough to coat the top and to have enough to pour over the meatloaf. Despite my major goof-up with the soup, the recipe turned out well enough for me to try again ( and make it the right way :) ). Thank you for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
The meatloaf itself is bland, and I added some garlic and seasoned salt, I will kick it up more next time, that is an easy fix. That said, the texture is perfect! And the topping of golden mushroom soup is a twist that I really enjoyed. I will make this meatloaf again, I will just kick it up more in the seasoning department.
This was my first time making meatloaf and it was even better than my mom's!! It had so much flavor and was so juicy. I was a little hesitant about the recipe at first b/c I was used to ketchup in meatloaf, but I am so glad I tried this! I did add chopped onion to mine for a little more flavor. Will be making this again and again!
