"These were good... and really easy to make. I might make them again, because of how quick and easy they were. I made them exactly per the recipe, but would probably add additional spices next time."

"Good stuff. I used stove top herb stuffing. No need to add extra spices but you can if you want. I usually add some chopped onion, a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, and tablespoon of Asian chili paste for spice. This is an easy and versatile dinner."

"Tasty meatloaf and easy to make! I wondered about them, since there are no spices or seasoning added, but they were good. With only a 5-minute prep, it's perfect for any weeknight! We'll be making this again."
