Reviews for Cool-Kitchen Meat Loaf
"i like this recipe iti is quick and easy to make. plus my family really enjoyed it. will make again"
"They ate the WHOLE thing in one sitting!! This is a KEEPER!!!"
"My husband does not care for meatloaf...and he really enjoyed this one!!! I will continue to make it from now on."
"delicious and very moist!"
"I've been making this recipe for over a year now. I add more brown sugar to the sauce and a little white sugar or splenda and less mustard and vinegar. It is absolutley fantastic! One of our family's favorites!"
"good grief - don't use the foil pans if you don't want them ending up in someone else's backyard. no need to judge - she's probably "green" in other ways - just like you."
"As with any recipe, each family can make whatever adjustments they deem appropriate. I loved it just the way it was and washed out the tins to recycle. I really liked having the two loaves. With just 2 of us, one went in the freezer and leftovers from each loaf made delicious sandwiches the next day."
"And when you "just toss out the foil pans," where do you think they are going? To someone else's back yard! Reduce, reuse, recycle."
"Wow, sounds good but way TOO much sodium!"
"Sounds like a good idea, but I would want more flavor, so I would add the usual green peppers, tomatoes and garlic to the above ingredients."
