Reviews for Homemade Individual Meat Loaves
"My family loves this recipe. On occasion, I have substituted Italian style bread crumbs for the oats."
"I love meat loaf and these were quite good. I did cut two slices of raw bacon into thirds, and put a piece on each individual loaf before baking which I think added a lot to the flavor. The ketchup and mustard and brown sugar are also another important part of the goodness of these loaves, and I may increase the topping by one half...or double it....the next time. A good recipe, simple, and they cook up fast."
"This was tasty--I made one big loaf and cooked it a little over an hour."
"This is the only meat loaf recipe I make! Everyone in my family loves it!"
"This was made frequently until I lost the recipe. How grateful I was to find it exactly on Taste of Home. Not only does it cook faster than a regular meatloaf, it looks more pleasing, enough to serve to company."
"Although I'm not a meatloaf fan myself, I really liked these. They were easy and didn't require a lot of ingredients. I really liked the sauce on top and will probably double it next time. Very good though!"
"This has been the only meat loaf recipe I have made since I made it years ago. My family cheers each time I make it. I've made these individual meat loaves for 100+ people at church or when we've had people over to our home for dinner. I usually make additional sauce for the top. We love it!"
"The ketchup mixture on top was not a hit with my family. However, I really liked the ease of the recipe and how quickly it cooked. I'll experiment with some different toppings to fit our family... Thanks!"
"Tastes great! It's sweeter than I expected, but a good kind of sweet! My husband devoured the leftovers for lunch the next day=)"
"This is a great recipe. They're moist and delicious!"
