Reviews for Zesty Horseradish Meat Loaf
"Ran across this recipe, and it is a keeper. Hubby and I both loved the taste, and it was juicy."
"I did not care for this at all. It had the texture of wet baby food and strong taste of horseradish. Not for me."
"This was SO good! Excellent, flavorful meatloaf recipe. I used Nature's Own Double Fiber Wheat Bread and Silk Unsweetened Original Almond Milk in the recipe to cut the fat and calories, and it took the calories down to 179/slice. Yay! My whole family enjoyed this, from ages 4 to 41. Definitely a keeper! I prepared it the night before as I was going to bed, covered it with foil in the loaf pan, and simply took it out to add the ketchup and bake it for dinner the next night. Made for an easy meal!"
"I loved this meat loaf. The only thing I changed was to use a pounf of ground Turkey and for the other 1/2 pound I used Italian Turkey Sausage. I baked it at 375 for 45 minutes and it turned out great."
"this recipe is very good. my husband and i like things a little more spicy, so instead of using regular chili sauce i used sriracha."
