Reviews for Down-Home Meat Loaf
"I have made this meatloaf for years and find it to be the closest to the meatloaf that I remember as a child. Don't let the horseradish scare you off! You don't taste it when you eat it. It is a great combination of ingredients."
"I've never been much of a meatloaf fan, but I've made this several times and love it. It's my go to recipe to make and give to new moms, sick friends, etc. They always ask for the recipe - I've even had other people ask me for the recipe because the person I made it for told them how good it was! I always make 2 at time -because it's easy but messy. I freeze my 2nd one uncooked that way it doesn't taste like re-heated leftovers when we eat it."
