I make the recipe as stated. It takes about 1h10min to bake in my oven.
This was very good, however 30 mins is not nearly long enough. I baked mine for 40 mins (knowing how long my meatloaf usually takes) and then added the ketchup and baked for another 10 mins and it was still nearly raw in the center. Next time I will bake for an hour before adding ketchup and then another 15 mins.
Not a meatloaf fan but this was easy & delicious. Husband & kids agreed! I also had to cook longer than the recipe called for, probably closer to an hour.
This recipe is wonderful! I am a beginner cook and not a very good one so far - but I couldn't mess this one up! I added some diced onions and mushrooms and it came out perfect! Thank you Taste of Home!
This is now the meatloaf that I make all the time. Through the years I've tried MANY different recipes, but I found this is my favorite to make, it's simple and delicious and makes a great leftover for meatloaf sandwiches. I do add a little bit more breadcrumbs and less ketchup because my son does not like ketchup, but other than that, I follow the recipe as stated. Thank you so much for sharing!
