"It was so easy. I didn't have the saltines and I only used 1lb of ground beef. I just adjusted the amount of salt and it was great. So easy."

"i don't use ketchup in my meatloaf. It appears to look uncooked. I just use eggs, salt, pepper, worchestershire sauce, garlic, crackers, & onions and a bit of sage. mix it well and shape into loaf pan sprayed with pam. bake @350 for 1 hr. and serve with mashed or baked taters....a vegie and presto... my husbands favorite dinner."
