My kids (who are not fans of Meat Loaf) ate every bit of it. This was one of the best, basic Meat Loaf Recipes I have made. The flavor of the crackers is wonderful!

This recipe has got to be the best I've ever tried. It is an easy, basic meatloaf that is also very moist & tasty. This is definately a keeper.
