Reviews for Traditional Meat Loaf
Sort By :
"I added italian seasoning, 1 lb hamburger, 1 lb turkey and all of us like it."
"My husband likes this (made with beef), so this is the one I will continue to make. I did add some chopped bell pepper."
"I've been making this meatloaf since I first saw it. It's the only meatloaf I like to be honest. I always run the onions finely through the food processor which gives it the onion taste without getting chunks of onion and I shred my carrots well. It's just so good!"
"it was okay, if I would make it again I would shred my carrots a little thinner."
