I love meatloaf and am always looking for new recipes. I found this recipe to be thoroughly uninspiring, lacking flavor.
I used 1 lb. of ground beef and 1 lb. ground pork instead. This recipe was delicious ! My husband loved it.
Best meat loaf EVER! My family hates meat loaf but they ask for this one.
It's difficult to find something to appease my elderly parents, whom I cook for on a regular basis. My father usually just picks at his food and my mother is a ridiculously picky eater (and usually insists on something bland). I don't think I've ever seen my father devour something so quickly or ask for seconds (and considered thirds!). Very basic, very easy to make, but very tasty and reheats well!
This was a very good meatloaf and I was pleased that it stayed together very well and cut nicely. I added 4 cloves of minced garlic and sauteed it along with the onion. I only put in 1/4 teaspoon of thyme and still found it strong. My husband and I did not care for the thyme taste and will leave it out completely next time. I added some fresh minced parsley into the mixture and used all ground beef.I used Goldfish extra cheddar for the crackers. I served it with mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and crescent rolls. My son loved the meal and I will make this easy meatloaf again!
