Reviews for Vegetable Soup Meat Loaf
"This is excellent . The only meat loaf my wife will eat."
"Me and my wife are ground turkey eaters. I only modified this recipe a little bit.Instead of just bread, I used a cup of GFS croutons. And instead of a can of tomato sauce, I combined about 3 Tbs Ketchup, 3 Tbs brown sugar and 1 Tbs A1 sauce.The meatloaf came out of the oven in a color only slightly lighter than beef and the flavor/moisture/tenderness was amazing."
"very good....lve the veggies in the meat loaf....thanks...."
"Tasted good, but did not hold together well."
"I first made this as a home economics cooking assignment back in the 1960s! It still makes a tasty meat loaf."
"I have been looking for this recipe for years and even asked my mother if she remembered it but found nothing. I am so excited to find this and remember this from my childhood and will definitely try this and see if it is as good as I remember. Thanks so much, Linda, Woodstock, Ga."
"I know how to substitute meat substitutes for meat but this does not sound like a vegetarian dish. Some people may not know what to use in place of ground beef."
