MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 9, 2013

"I love the simplicity of this recipe. My issue is with the flavor. For us, it was just too bland. We couldn't taste the onion flavor very well, so the next time I made a few changes. I added french fried onions on top and used herb stuffing instead of beef. It still wasn't quite right. I also tried adding a mix of beef and pork. Still nothing. So, unfortunately, my family will not be making this again, but it does have potential for others."

"Made it with deer meat...because...well...we live in Texas and have a ranch. ;-) It was amazing! Made it just like the recipe. No changes with the exception of TURKEY stove top stuffing. It was so good!!!!!! Will make it again!"

"Very easy to make and tasted great! I was not able to find beef-flavored stuffing, so I went with sage and it turned out excellent! Looking forward to having this one again."

"I love this recipe. My husband is the meatloaf lover of the house and I am the meatloaf hater. But I can learn to love meatloaf if it is moist and flavorful like this one. I have made this several times and each time I either used savory herbs or traditional sage."
