Reviews for Easy Meat Loaf
"Really wanted to like this because it was so easy to make and smelled so good baking. As some others said, mine turned out mushy. I even used two pounds of ground beef instead of one. Will stick to my old recipe and definitely not make this one again."
"My meatloaves tend to come out dry, but this recipe came out nice and moist. Easy and tasty comfort food. Martymi - besides mixing the meatloaf more, make sure you use 90% lean ground beef - the fattier grades release much more grease into the gravy and make everything mushier."
"Easy and my family loved it!!!"
"the more you mix it the more it will come together"
"Plenty of sodium in this recipe, but it's awesome! Probably one of my favorite meat loaf recipes."
"I'm not sure why, but mine turned out like meat loaf mush. Not a loaf at all. It tasted good, but still . . . . Any suggestions?"
"Wonderful. I will be making this gain and often. My family really enjoyed it."
