"Although tastes a lot like meatloaf, it was different and still a crowd pleaser."

"The meat was so soft it felt like you were eating mush. I did everything by the recipe I guess I needed more meat although I had 3 lbs."

"It sounded okay until you got to the catsup. Why ruin good food recipes with catsup?"
