We thought this was a great meatloaf recipe! The only changes I made were to omit the green pepper and to top it with BBQ sauce.
Hubby loved it!!!!Omitted carrot,potatoes & cheese. Omitted sliced bread (added homemade bread crumb recipe-save in freezer all leftover bread crust ends (that no one will eat),toast 'em in toaster, place in food processor,add salt,pepper,parsley, oregano, process in food processor; then refreeze, use as necessary ).
Note: Never buy store bought bread crumbs again. Sometimes I add Parmesan cheese to bread crumb mixture.
Hubby said after 28yrs+ my meatloaf was always missing something. He said, this is the one!! He actually asked me to make again next day so that he could have meatloaf sandwiches for work.
