My family would rather have this than plain meat loaf. It's a good way to dress up an ordinary dish for company. Many people have asked for the recipe.

"Meatloaf didn't hold form well, I will add another egg next time, and also was a bit bland"

"I wanted to spoof up my regular meatloaf and this recipe gave me the inspiration. I make my own meatloaf recipe since my family prefers the taste of more herbs and spices but the addition of the crescent rolls on top adds that extra touch."

"Wonderful! Since I have become Gluten intolerant, I use GF Bisquick and make my own blanket instead of the crescent rolls and GF bread cubes! Cannot tell the difference! So easy to prepare and yet so elegant!"

"I first found this recipe in a Taste of Home cookbook that I had bought years ago. My entire family loves this recipe. (Husband and six children.) My children are older now and five are still at home and they still all love this meatloaf! We will be having this for dinner tonight but I am using venison in place of ground beef."
