Mom made this scrumptious main dish frequently when I was growing up. When I first met my husband, he wasn't fond of meat loaf. This is the first meal I prepared for him, and now he requests it often. —Michelle Beran, Claflin, Kansas

I just made this today and it came out perfect! I will never need to try another meatloaf recipe. My husband loved it! This is my first review...I joined just to tell you how good this meatloaf and sauce was. Thanks for sharing it.

Delicious! Made this for the first time today (doubled the recipe) and my husband said he could eat an entire loaf himself. My 11 year old son was amazed about how much he liked it . In fact, he said, "...Mom, I want you to make that meatloaf for my birthday!" For the sauce, I didn't have ketchup, so I used tomato sauce instead and cooked the sauce for a few minutes on the stove to thicken it a bit before spreading on the meatloaf.

This is a delicious tender meatloaf. I am not a fan of ketchup on meatloaf but loved this one-the brown sugar and worcestershire sauce make all the difference. Its our family's favorite meatloaf recipe.
