Finally - a meatloaf my husband and children will eat! It's so delicious and moist. I halved the recipe and it still makes plenty. Thanks so much!

This is a delicious meatloaf. I made 1/2 the recipe for a smaller loaf and it was perfect. I had no problems with it falling apart like others mentioned.

Fast and easy to make. Great finished result, and the glaze on top adds the perfect finishing touch.

MY REVIEW

I've been trying to find a meatloaf recipe for thirty years the hubby will like..."too stiff...too spicy...falls apart too much..too bland...." This one was a winner! I halved the recipe, but did the full sauce amount. Also, I substituted the saltines for Ritz crackers, as that is all I had on hand. I grated the carrots, but not fine, and I think it gave more texture. As someone else said, it goes great with green beans. I didn't experience falling apart. I will definitely be making this one again!
