Mom's Meat Loaf Recipe

Publisher Photo
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

MY REVIEW

"This is very tasty! We both loved it. I used club crackers in place of saltines, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper, minced garlic cloves (2-3) and used 2 to 2-1/2 lbs meatloaf mix and 1 lb 80/20 ground beef. I have tried so many recipes for meatloaf but this is my go to now."

"This was AWFUL!!! My husband loves meatloaf so I thought I would give this recipe a go. I couldn't finish my meal & he proceeded to throw away the leftovers. Thanks for the $12 waste!!!"

"To 'buddystar' - rubbed sage is just crushed sage that is rubbed between your fingers and then added to your mix. This is a very good recipe, but I omit the sage; but at times I will add some chopped green pepper."

"This was a pretty good meatloaf. I usually don't like putting raw onion in meatloaf (want to saute it) but this came out really well. Will definitely make it again."
