"Made this tonight for dinner. Very nice. Interesting flavour but tasty. My family enjoyed this. Recipe was just about right - no changes although had to cook slightly longer. Used wholegrain mustard. Would definitely make this again. Thanks for a great recipe."

"Delicious. Instead of the chili sauce - I mixed up a sauce made from ketchup, mustard and brown sugar to put on top. Mine took 1 ½ hours to bake."

"This is the best meatloaf I have ever made. Even my son, who is not a meatloaf fan, went back for seconds. Reduced the bread crumbs to 3/4 cup, added 1/4 cup chopped green pepper and instead of chili sauce, I used 1/2 cup ketchup with brown sugar, garlic powder and a little dried chopped onion. It was sweet and delicious. Will make plenty more in the future. May even show off for the in-laws..."
